Yeah, M.C. Escher was certainly a pioneer in visual interpretative study.

i took this weird class in h.s. about all kinds of fringe-math topics. Escher was a big topic for a while. teacher showed us vids and explained some of the geometry and general math-yness behind some of his work. then we had a project to do an escher-style picture (one of the ones with redundant animals/objects morphing into other animals/things). its wicked hard, even when u like really understand the idea behind it and all.

he's really cool.

Often referred to as 'the mathematician's artist', an apt title, considering how complicated his works were mathematically.

Also of interest is the Lego Escher projects, which are quite neat as well.

Godel Escher Bach by Douglas R. Hofstadter is a Must Read.
