This shapeshifting Mannheim house could be the work of MC Escher
Swirling staircases appear to pop from the side of a building in southwest Germany – the handiwork of Italian artist Peeta, aka Manuel Di Rita, who’s daubed the corner home in blue and white paint to create the MC Escher-like illusion.
Peeta often uses layers of paint to create the effect of new architectural elements on existing buildings. For this project he’s added curved shapes and deep hollows, using inky paint to give the impression of bulges and contours.
Elsewhere in the city visitors can see a Memphis-style piece by graffiti duo Low Bros and an alternative version of the world map by Finnish artist EGS.
