Maurits Cornelis Escher was a Dutch graphic artist born in 1898 in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. His work featured an array of mathematically inspired ideas including hyperbolic geometry, tessellations, stellated polyhedra, symmetry and impossible object optical illusions.
Combining these technical themes with natural and architectural inspiration from his travels in Europe, Escher created detailed and surreal illustrations that became his definitive style.
Though popular among mathematicians, scientists and in popular culture, Escher never found critical acclaim in the art world as his work was considered too intellectual. Today, M.C. Escher’s illustrations are some of the most recognized in the world.
This spring, Supreme has worked on a collection featuring artwork by M.C. Escher. The collection features a lightweight Trench Coat, cotton Baseball Jersey, twill Short, Hooded Sweatshirt, two short sleeve T-Shirts, one long sleeve T-Shirt and a Camp Cap.
