- Full Description
Blending his imagination with traditional Flemish painting techniques, Polish born artist Jacek Yerka has created a style completely his own. His mind-bending, dreamlike landscapes seem both realistic and surreal. All but one of these seem to be new material, at least to my eye, though they are touted as his 13 most popular paintings. These truly will fascinate and enchant you throughout the year. Wildly imaginative, combining fun illusions with beautifully drawn creatures and scenes of fantasy.
The same publisher who collected the work of Giger published a collection of Yerka's work many years ago, but to date these annual calendars are the only way to see more of him. Amazing stuff. He's been painting now for more than three decades. He's received the World Fantasy Award as best artist. His influences include Bosch, Bruegel, Cagliostro, Jan van Eyck and Hugo van der Goes. Don’t worry if you don't recognize all those names either, neither do I. I guess this is the Flemish connection.
