Recently in the Netherlands, Leon Keer created five street pieces in memory of M.C. Escher in the city of his birth – Leeuwarden. Painted in the anormorphic style that he has become known for, the Dutch artist thrilled the crowds who gathered to watch his work and provided perfect photo ops for the art lovers. Keer’s chosen source of inspiration was a perfect fit for his mind-bending 3D works with Escher also known for impossible objects and plays on perspective. These works were produced with the assistance of the Fries Museum and Station Leeuwarden with many of the pieces painted in and around the institution and train station.
