This page shows off some of the work
of two of my favourite artists, both
of whom have a mathematical flavour to their work. Take a look at
some of their paintings, and if you want to know more about them,
then why not have a look on Google or Wikipedia
Should you wish to print out or enlarge
any images, I can recommend Photobox:
1. Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898 - 1972) was a Dutch graphic
artist who is famous for his amazing, mathematically inspired paintings.
These explore concepts such as tesselations,
architecture and infinity,
and often contain impossible constructions.
Below is a collection of some of Mr Barton's favourites. I hope you
2. Julian Beever is an English artist who has been creating
chalk drawings on pavement surfaces all around the world for over
10 years. My personal favourite are his anamorphic
illusions, which are drawn in a special distortion in order
to create an impression of 3 dimensions when
seen from a particular viewpoint. When looking at these drawings,
it is sometimes easy to forget that they are drawn on a flat surface!
