It is while in the hands of Jan van der Ploeg, whose dynamic designs grace walls across Germany and The Netherlands and even far on the other side of the equator as in this outdoor mural in Foxton, New Zealand.

His style tends towards vivid colors and big blocks of contrasting-tone geometric designs, but he also authors dazzling displays of Escher-esque complexity.
