Artist: MC Escher
Style: Surrealism
I chose this drawing by M C Escher because I feel his art surpasses the rules of physics. When he draws he seems to be able to make his subjects bend, twist, and act opposite of what the mind can comprehend. For example, in this one, he somehow gets the dragon to bite its own tail after it comes through its body and the head goes under and over its own wings! And what is really nice about this drawing is how he makes the background black with some soft white touches to make the dragon this main focal point of the drawing, which really marks the impact of the drawing.
