Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain

Right now I am the most famous for my illusionistic paintings. I have a puzzled relation to this fact. The main reason for this fame is that I published my illusionistic alphabet already 1998 on the Internet. In terms of Internet is this a long time ago. The alphabet has been published in for example a Dutch illusionistic calendar by Paul Baars only because it could be found on the Internet. This means that I have fans, sort of, and this means I have a responsibility towards my fans to give them a little bit more of my illusionistic art.

So here comes a series of blog posts about illusionistic paintings that I made during the spring of 2011.

This painting is a spiral. The edge of the spiral displays the color spectrum. There are a couple of verses to remember the color spectrum: Richard Of York Gave Battle in Vain. Another is Ring Out Your Great Bells In Victory. And is this spiral possible? No it is not possible, it is an illusion.

I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
