Jacek Yerka is a Polish surreal artist and painter from Toruń. Yerka studied art for a short time at University, but then learnt from direct study of Northern European masters, the Van Eycks, Dierck Bouts, Robert Campin, Bosch, and surrealists such as Magritte.

Washing dishes, ironing clothes, eating breakfast – all those little things that heroes do off screen.
