Starting on 17 May, four large street art installations by Leon Keer will point the way to the Escher exhibit at the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden.
World-renowned pop-surrealist artist Leon Keer will create four drawings inspired by Escher’s works. Keer is famous for his anamorphic street art: a distorted image which seems to recreate the original aspect ratio of the scene.
According to the Leeuwarder Courant, the first drawing will be created near the Leeuwarden train station and the last one will be on the Wilhelmina square in front of the Fries Museum.
The drawings will be part of a project called Planet Escher. The museum is inviting artists to share their interpretation of the famed graphic artist from Leeuwarden. Keer’s works will be the first created through the project.
