Jos de Mey ~ “Impossible Structures

Jos de Mey is most known for his meticulously realistic depictions of impossible structures. His works further several of M.C. 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.  <source>
