Jacek Yerka belongs to one of my favourite artists, he is from Poland and has already made a lot of exhibitions in Warsaw, Los Angeles, Dusseldorf, London and Paris. His home is not just his castle it is a studio as well.

Amazing painting from Jacek Yerka

Jacek was born in 1952 and only in 1980 became a real successful artist. While studying at the University, Yerka can’t stand the pressure of teachers and instructors – they told him what to do and how to do and told him to be less realistic. But, Jacek didn’t pay attention, he continued working in a Flemish style. And, finally, teachers gave up and admitted Jacek to be a genius.

Jacek Yerka vision of a city

The first serious picture of Jacek was made a year before entering the college. In college, he studied graphics. Yerka had a very happy childhood and considered it to be a some kind of Golden Age. Everything was beautiful: buildings, people, architecture… namely these surrounding made a great artist out of me.

And now let’s talk a little about Yerka’s paintings. It is not easy to draw a picture. The first stage is – work of imagination, then comes a turn of a small rough copy. The 3d stage – time proving, a project rests for some time and if after a week or two the artist still has no decision to go on with it, it will never see real life or can be sold to a collector.

Each work costs approximately rough $3000. Yerka’s paintings are mainly acrylic on canvas.

P. S. In warm weather artist works below his favourite tree. Jacek says, that its scent inspires him…

    You are welcome, Secret. I like his pictures, they are really incredible. I can spend hours while looking at them.

      me too, Angel. I have my screensaver loaded, all with Jacek’s work. I spend hours looking at them, and now I do these electronic musical soundscapes (ambient) attempting to translate the feelings of his works into sound. A feat I cannot say I have achieved, but the attempt is what matters. His technique is very advanced, and it’s kickin’ my butt to even attempt that level of artistic development. It’s definitely raised the bar in terms of me as a composer and electronic artist. At times I have been able to capture sonically perhaps a feel of some of his works. But again, that’s very subjective. But I believe it needs to be done for some reason. heheh.

    He is really excellent. He isnt as breath-takingly surreal as Salvador Dali, or as confusing as Alex Pardee but he has a subtler way of making you think.
    I really like him.
    Thank You.

  • Smakovich | April 18th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    Wait…the fourth painting, the cloud balloon flying over the mountains, i think that’s actually Vladimir Kush, not Jacek Yerka, but the rest of the painting ARE Jacek Yerka…i know because i’m a follower of the surrealism, old and new, and i know both artists.

  • Roberto | October 31st, 2009 at 10:26 am

    Amazing! Please, can you recommend me any album or book by Yerka?
