Jos de Mey Jos de Mey was born in 1928, the Flemish artist Jos de Mey studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent Belgium then taught interior architecture and color studies for 39 years. Since 1968 he has concentrated on painting. 

He is most well known for his meticulously realistic depictions of impossible structures. His works further several of Escher's ideas, and are presented in a style that combines the surrealistic elements of Magritte with the flemish touches of Brueghel and other painters of the low countries. Many of his recent works feature an owl, the paradoxical flemish symbol that simultaneously represents theoretical knowledge and the wily fool.
