Artist

Why?

Some of his work like "Sky and Water" includes tesselations but most of his other works are illusions. His "Acending and Desending" is mostly an illusion and has no scource of tesselations. He was also more famous for his illutions than his tesselations making that his profession. President lincon was well known for being president, not a lawyer so does it mean he was mainly a lawyer?
