"Award winning Polish artist Jacek Yerka has become synonymous with a surreal style of Fantasy art, gaining his remarkable visions from dreams and the capricious landscapes of his pastoral-like existence. His paintings are something of a cross between Vladimir Kush’s ‘Metaphorical Realism’ and Jim Warren’s whimsical ‘Magical realism’. We can also add some of the great surrealists and Flemish masters such as Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Brueghel and Jan van Eyck into the mix. These artists styles and techniques (to some degree) influenced Yerka’s unique vision of “realism” and gave him a solid platform on which to convey reality through surreal compositions and meticulous brushstrokes.
Observing his paintings, you’ll will be drawn into the strong surreal elements, otherworldly qualities and some of the strangest oddities that form Yerka’s fantastic visions."
What more can I say? A perfect explanation and description to a near perfect fantasy world painter.
