Jacek Yerka was born in Poland in 1952. He studied fine art and graphic designs before becoming a full-time artist. Yerka’s training in art techniques is apparent in the neat layout of his surrealist paintings and the crisp way in which each painting is finished. The style that Yerka uses to create his paintings is called Flemish, a style that hints at an outline around objects and gives every aspect of the painting an exquisite level of detail.
Yerka’s surrealist paintings are inspired by the pastoral surroundings of his home. He often works beneath an apple tree in his garden, sitting in a chair and supporting his painting on an easel. The peace of his work space allows Jacek Yerka to become completely absorbed with his painting.
Jacek Yerka is celebrated as one of the world’s foremost modern surrealism painters whose work combines the realms of fantasy and science fiction. You can buy prints of this Jacek Yerka’s paintings through his online art gallery and shop.
