How to complete Escape Artist in Escape Academy

Can't get caught if you escape.

After completing the Entrance Exam, you are officially a student of Escape Academy. This opens up new challenges and puzzles for you, like those in the mission Escape Artist. In this mission, Professor Slip asks you to vandalize the Escape Monument. Here is how to complete the Escape Artist mission in Escape Academy.

Step One – Painted Objects

Your first challenge is to get the spray paint can, but this will take a few steps. The first you want to do is grab the cheese located on the stool by the paintings, the wine bottle on the chair behind the paintings, and the bananas in the middle cabinet. Place these on the table in front of the paintings and look at them from the front. This will reveal the code 139.

Step Two – Locker Combination and Anti-Invisible Ink

Go to the locker with the lock and enter combination 139. Grab the Anti-Invisible Ink and head to the back corner of the room where the colored dots are. Put the Anti-Invisible Ink on this mural to reveal a series of lines lining the dials.

Step Three – Color Code the Dials

Follow the lines from the colored dots to the dials. These will tell you the color combination you need to input. This is:

  • Red
  • Purple
  • Yellow
  • Green

This will open the door to the office. Go to the metal cabinet on the left and grab the spray paint.

Go back to the main room and open the left cabinet. Grab the painting and head to the empty frame. Once the painting is placed on the easel, rearrange it to fix the painting and get the code to the other locked door here. Enter the code Right, Left, Right, Up, Down, Down. Once inside, scan the images along the wall. The final image reveals the code for the safe, which is:

  • Center Left Button
  • Center Right Button
  • Bottom Left Button

Step Five – Sculptures and Statues

Grab the Strange Sculpture and attach it to the nose of the door with the face. Arrange the face to look at the image above to get it to open. The eyes should be looking down and to the right, the mouth should be slightly open, and the eyebrows should be slanted with the left side lower. Inside you will find various gates with numbers and sculptures. You can use the images around you to solve the following rooms or use this guide.

Step Six - Sculpture Room 1

Grab the keys, labeled #2 and #5, and take them to the gate marked 7. Use both keys to open the key and find yourself facing a group of four sculptures. Arrange the faces to look like the image above and match the silhouettes outside the first gate. This will open the gate behind them and reveal more keys labeled #3, #4, and #7.

Use the #3 and #7 keys on the gate labeled 10. Inside are more sculptures that you can knock the heads back on. Make the sculptures match the image above to open the gate in the back and grab the #1 key. These sculptures match the paintings that showed people that were decapitated around the gates which are the first, third, and sixth from the left.

Step Eight - Sculpture Room 3

The final sculpture room must be arranged from tallest to shortest, like the image above. You can use the paintings around the gate to determine this order or just use the image above. Once you do this, the gate in the back opens and lets you reach the Monument. Interact with it to spray paint your mark, and complete the Escape Artist mission.
