Jacek Lazuka is a Polish-born, American-raised contemporary artist. His immigration from communist Poland to the United States at the age of four shaped his perception of two distinct worlds. Raised in a Polish-speaking household, he had a rough transition into English speaking school. He struggled to erase the linguistic barrier between himself and his peers, feeling apart from and alien to this American world.

A promising artist from a very young age he used his creative skills to make friends. It wasn’t long until his teachers took notice of this quiet boy’s artistic abilities. From elementary school he began receiving awards for his paintings, his teachers entered into competitions. By the time he was in high school he was painting a large mural for his school on a fifteen foot wall.

Desiring a college education Lazuka enlisted in the US Air Force. He served in Japan as an airplane mechanic and crew chief. During this time he secretly pursued art, trying not to rouse the interest of his fellow soldiers. He worked in oils, playing with different techniques, studying the European masters and reveling in the simple Japanese Aesthetic. He also, attended college and upon his return to civilian life he graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in social science.

Currently, living and working in southern California. He has been a full-time artist since 2005. His contemporary work explores the ideas of the non-ordinary realm or the world apart from the material. His Native series explores simple Neolithic forms and alien landscapes. He creates works in oil on canvas then manipulates his images onto copper and aluminum sheets. He is constantly working on the process of creating new techniques which will allow him to further express the non-ordinary. His studio/gallery is in Laguna beach, California.
