Biography from Agra Art S.A.:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jacek Yerka was born in 1952.  He graduated in 1976 the Faculty of Fine Arts at Nicolas Copernicus University in Torun. He specialized in graphic art.

During the first few years after graduation he exhibited posters at The Biennial Exhibition of Polish Posters in Katowice in 1977 and 1979, at the international biennial exhibitions in Lahti and Warsaw, among others.

Since 1980, Jacek Yerka devoted himself completely to painting. Taking pattern from former masters like Jan van Eyck or Hieronymus Bosch but mainly based on his unlimited imagination, he creates surrealistic compositions, particularly admired by enthusiasts of sci-fi. Jacek Yerka inspired the fantasy writer Harlon Ellison to write 30 short stories which along with Yerkas pictures constituted the publication entitled "Mind Fields". The same American publisher "Morpheus International" released the album "The Fantastic Art of Jacek Yerka".

In 1995 he was awarded the prestigious World Fantasy Award for the best artist. Jacek Yerka has exhibited in Poland, Germany, France and USA, being an esteemed representative of the science fiction stream of art. His paintings have recently inspired film makers. The artist has been invited to cooperate in the production of an American movie "Strawberry Fields" in which his paintings were to be accompanied by the Beatles music.
