In Mon d'Escheriaan I tried to combine the work of two of my favorite artists: Mondriaan and Escher. The colors and lines are based on the work of Mondriaan. The optical illusion is based on the work of Escher


Background Story

In may 2014 I drawed some stuff on my computer to try out some impossible lines and structures. I came up with this one. More then a year later I finally decide to paint this one although I thought that it would be better to fill up the lines. Furthermore I didn't want to fill up all the blocks with colors. Instead of that I filled only a few sides up in the basic colors; blue, red and yellow. That way I could combine the color scheme of Mondriaan which I was inspirated by and the impossible cubes as made by Escher.
