Everyone, fascinated by dramatic weather phenomena, knows how inconspicuously a tsunami begins. Ot, an inconspicuous, not high, very long wave, which does not stop at the beach, but rushes inland, snatching, destroying and overturning everything it meets in its path.

My idyllic tsunami is different.

It's actually the opposite of the real, destructive element.

Very impressive and spectacular.

It won't hurt anyone. It will not deprive anyone of their possessions. The cities above and below will remain untouched.

It will not interfere with the flight of the kite and will not chase away the white clouds.

It is like a rainbow - unspeakably beautiful, but it does not disturb or change anything.

Jacek Yerka

Jacek Yerka (Toruń 1952, lives near Toruń) graduated in 1976 from the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. 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.
