Surrealistic Brilliance (Jacek Yerka)

Jacek Yerka was born in Toruń, Poland, in 1952. He grew up with an artistic family and wanted to differentiate his own art style from his parents' artistic techniques. Jacek Yerka mentioned that he faced pressure from professors to change his techniques to suit the more contemporary styles that were more popular at the time. He persevered with his own artistic style that was greatly influenced by Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, Hugo van der Goes and Jan van Eyck. Jacek Yerka became a full fledged artist in 1980 and from then on has won multiple international awards.


Jacek Yerka's classical Flemish painting technique is full of incredible details that accentuates the surrealistic themes of his work. The artistic pieces appear as though they came straight out of a wildly bizarre dream.

I think you have to be a tad insane to make these. Some will call it "imagination" but it's simply your non-conformist brain.

Or something like that.
