The House Style is a concept blending elements from De Stijl (Rietveld, Mondrian) and the impossible perspectives of Escher into a new modern painting.


Background Story

I always liked the colors, brightness and abstractness of De Stijl. I also like Escher a lot. I already combined both styles once in my other painting Mon d'Escheriaan. Now I wanted to make a new one that looks a bit like the famous Rietveld-Schroderhouse. Although this house can't exist as it has some impossible elements in it.

I also added some glow in the dark paint at the windows as it gives those windows a bit off a glassy look. Another nice effect is that if you put the lights off, it seems people actually live in the house and have their lights on.
