For many years I have been hunting for such places - gentle slopes overgrown with friendly trees, with emerald grass - this is what paradise should look like. Every dozen years or so, since 1979, I try to paint them. Now I also have an unfinished version of my paradise in my studio, but it will probably take a few years before I'm satisfied with it.
The version described here was created during a rather gray period of my life, so the source is emerald, the grass is fresh and green, and the heating lava is friendly and tangerine.

- Jacek Yerka



Jacek Yerka (Toruń 1952, lives near Toruń) graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń in 1976. He specialized in graphic arts. In the first years after graduation, he exhibited posters, including at the Biennale of Polish Poster in Katowice in 1977 and 1979, international biennials in Lahti and Warsaw, and others. Since 1980 he has devoted himself entirely to painting. Drawing on a precise pictorial technique modeled on the old masters (Jan van Eyck, Hieronymus Bosch), but above all on his own boundless imagination, he creates surreal compositions, especially admired by lovers of fantasy in all varieties. He inspired, for example, fantasy author Harlan Ellison to write 30 short stories, which, along with Yerka's paintings, made up the publication titled. "Mind Fields." The same American publishing house "Morpheus International" published the album "The Fantastic Art of Jacek Yerka". In 1995 the artist was awarded the prestigious World Fantasy Award for best artist. He exhibits at home and abroad (in Germany, France, the USA and others), being a respected representative of the fantastic art trend. He collaborated in the production of the American film "Strawberry Fields", where the images were to be accompanied by Beatles music.
