Jos de Mey has died

With deep regret I should report that in December 22th 2007 the great man and the famous Belgian artist Jos de Mey has died.

He was one of the most famous artists in imp-art. His name have always been referred along with another Holland artist M.C. Escher. Jos de Mey was the unique artist, who could organic combine detailed photo realistic Flemish landscapes with complex impossible constructions. His artwork were demonstrated at many personal and group exhibitions in Belgium and other countries.

I believe he will be always remembered in many countries, and his works will be great theme of inspiration for many artists around the world.

Below you can see the original Escher's image "Curl up", where moving of this created is shown in four steps.
