Mita Makura

I still remember when, in the early seventies, you could find a book of M. C. Escher (1898 - 1972) on the shelf of every stoner and acidhead....With their impossible architectures, magical landscapes,tessellations and interconnected geometries, Escher's works were a 'must' for all the psychonauts and surreal art lovers of those times.
Recently someone has acutely described the artwork of the Japanese artist Mita Makura as "Escher on digital steroids", so you can imagine.... Effectively his astounding detailed b&w works  are a true visual feast, but unfortunately you can't find anything about Mita Makura on the web, aside a post on shewalkssoftly and an image gallery on pinterest.../  so if someone has more details, please pass 'em on.....
