Jerzy Marek (1925-2014, Polish)

Jerzy Marek, Cat ArtistJerzy Marek (1925-2014, Polish) moved to England in 1948 after serving in WWII in the British Army. Marek first started painting in 1967 and was primarily self-taught.  He is known for his small scale primitive-naive pieces which show a variety of cats with enigmatic expressions in interiors and in pastoral scenes. These paintings use several layers of paint which give them a deep rich appearance. His works have been exhibited worldwide, and he is mentioned in the Rona Guide to the world of Naïve Art.  Marek died in 2014 at age 90.
