Jacek Sroka

Etchings by Jacek Sroka - Opening January 21st 5-8pm
Martha Street Studio, Winnipeg, Canada

"Jacek Sroka is close to medieval masters with his rich and astonishing imagination. His quick wit, innumerable and diverse interests, powerful sense of humor, subtle irony and ability to keep distance affect his specific way of ‘seeing’ and describing the world."

Jacek Sroka was born 1957 in Cracow. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow and was a teaching assistant there from 1981 to 1989. He began his artistic career as a print maker and his art includes painting, graphic art and drawing. He has received several awards, including: Graphica Atlantica in Reykjavik, Iceland (1987); Grand Prix, 4 Print Biennale in Vaasa, Finland (1987); Grand Prix, Print Biennale in Seoul, Korea (1987); “I. Trybowski” Prize, International Print Biennale in Cracow, Poland (1994); “W. Wojtkiewicz” Society of Artists Prize in Cracow, Poland (2001) and others.
