Surreal artwork by Jacek Yerka

Jacek Yerka (born. Jacek Kowalski in 1952) is a Polish surrealist painter from Toruń. Yerka’s work has been exhibited in Poland, Germany, Monaco, France, and the United States, and may be found in the museums of Poland.
Yerka began working full-time as an artist in 1980. He had several contracts with galleries in Warsaw and also worked for commissions. He cites Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, Cagliostro, Jan van Eyck, and Hugo van der Goes as formative influences on his work. His subject matter ranges from odd beasts to whimsical landscapes incorporating extraordinary architecture, and includes imagery gleaned from his childhood, such as his grandmother’s kitchen. Says Yerka, “For me, the 1950s were a kind of Golden Age … If I were, for instance, to paint a computer, it would definitely have a pre-war aesthetic to it.” Read more Surreal artwork by Jacek Yerka

Polish artist Jacek Yerka was born in 1952. The two of his mothers and fathers are artists, so he grew up with the scent of paint and surrounded by paper, ink, paints and brushes. Yerka was thinking about studying astronomy or medicine, but identified paint appropriate before his last test and thus entered the mysterious entire world of colors. The artist was mostly inspired by XV century Dutch tablet paintings.
