Jacek Yerka was featured previously on EK back in January 2010, posted by okmarzo. Today, we revisit Mr. Yerka, a contemporary surrealist painter originally hailing from and currently based in Poland, as we travel into his famed YERKALAND through his body of work.
Compared to many early 20th Century surrealist painters, Yerka’s strange, yet peaceful paintings tends to be far more inviting, almost drawing you into his pieces, whereas earlier surrealists (Salvador Dali, Max Ernst) almost invaded, or rather, imposed their vision and dream into your conscious space.
Whether it is I stepping in or stepping out of myself, to journey into the surreal is the momentary bliss that helps maintain my sanity in this mad, mad world. Cheers.
