Biography of Jacek Yerka

Born in Northern Poland in 1952, Surrealist Jacek Yerka resides in the Polish countryside with his wife and children. Possessing a tremendous ability to convey reality through his meticulous brushstrokes. Yerka adds a remarkable twist of fantasy to each and every painting. He gains his vision from dreams and the timeless surroundings of his pastoral-like existence.

Yerka studided graphics in school, but rejected his instructors' repeated attempts to steer his work into more contemporary and abstract directions. After three years of vain pressure, they finally relented, never fully understanding their student, but realizing the strength of his talent.

He works with oil on canvas in the style of the great Flemish masters such as Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Brueghel and Jan van Eyck. It generally takes Yerka about seven to eight weeks to complete a single painting.

Author Harlon Ellison was so fascinated by this amazing artist's work that he has written thirty exlusive new short tales for Mind Fields, the first published book of Yerka's art. Each story is based specifically upon one of the thirty paintings that appear in Mind Fields, facing directly opposite the work they were based upon. In 1995, he won the World Fantasy Award for best artist!
