Born in Poland in 1952, Jacek Yerka studied fine art and graphics prior to becoming a full-time artist in 1980. While at university, Yerka resisted the constant pressures of his instructors to adopt the less detailed, less realistic techniques continued to work in the classic, meticulous Flemish style he still favors to this day.
Yerka has won international awards for his art, and has exhibited in Warsaw, Dusseldorf, Los Angeles, Paris and London. He currently works and resides, with his family, in a rural enclave of his native Poland. (Bio from artist’s website)
