Leon Keer
For this exhibition, street artist Leon Keer has made a large mural in the basement of the Princessehof in Leeuwarden. He was inspired by Escher’s work Convex and Concave. With his three-dimensional interpretation of that work, Keer creates optical illusions in the vaulted basement of the house where Escher was born.
