Axel Ghyssaert

Axel Ghyssaert (°1933) is a Belgian architect.

Even as a child was Axel Ghyssaert drawing and painting process. When he had his degree of architect in his pocket, his career took an unprecedented speed. A house in the countryside building to make it disappear it was his intention. With the construction of his own house, he succeeded in this.

After a long, passionate career as an architect, Ghyssaert paints now parts of nature still starting out his glass mirror structures. The mirrors are optical image scavengers of nature. Light directing plays a role.
