Jacek Yerka is a Polish painter form Toru. Yerka was born in Toru, Poland in 1952 - where he later studied fine art and graphic design. According to Yerka he was pressured by his university instructors to eschew detail and realism in favour of the fashion of the times - but did not relent, adhering to the meticulous classic Flemish technique that still typifies his work. Yerka graduated from the faulty of fine arts at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toru, specialising in printmaking. He began working full time as an artist in 1980.
