Jacek Yerka

Moving slightly away from the realist artists that I was blogging about a few days ago, I've recently fallen a bit in love with Jacek Yerka. He takes images and memories from his childhood and distorts their "grey, somewhat horrifying reality" into fantasy landscapes of his own creation. The confused perspective and calculated chaos of their contents results in whimsical, sometimes mythical, sometimes slightly science fiction imaginings. This makes Yerka's work the perfect tool of escapism for both its creator and its viewer.
