As a self-proclaimed “professional nerd,” Andrew Lipson loves Legos. Over a series of projects, Lipson tackled the challenging task of recreating several M.C. Escher paintings in the colorful building toy, err.. building material.
Partnering with Daniel Shiu, the duo produced these three-dimensional renditions of some of Escher’s famous impossible construction drawings. As Escher’s original works are ripe with optical illusions, the task of recreating these works is quite a challenge!
Check out 4 of the Lego-building duo’s shockingly accurate painting recreations below!
