If you like Escher then you may want to check out the Bridges Mathart conference website for it has a lot of work in this vein.

both mathematics and art is about symmetry.... when something is symmetrical...it is beautiful... in fact nature gave us symmetry to study and asymmetry to explore to find out the symmetry behind it...

thanks for the link!...

I respectfully disagree. I see art having little if nothing to do with symmetry in fact most visual artists cringe when they see it.

Peace,
