Born in Częstochowa (Poland) in 1947, Jerzy Kędziora attended Fine Arts Secondary School in Częstochowa. Then he continued his education and completed his art degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Danzig (Poland). His relish in art manifests not only in carving but also in drawing, painting, advertising graphics, ceramics, medal art and spatial composition to theatrical scenography as well as applied arts.
As an artist, Jerzy Kędziora represents a totally new direction in carving – the balancing act of the clever sculptures and the laws of physics. He has taken one step further and created the pieces of art that balance in gravity on the thin cord. This made his art not only magnificent to look at but also subjected to sophisticated kinetics. „Jotka” attempts the observers by the new perspective which may change their present point of view. The sculptures are the symbol of human beings’ existence. Similarly to people who walk a tightrope between their emotions, decisions and states, the sculptures fight with the forces of nature. His art also represents the unreal and provoking world of dreams, ecstasy and breathtaking acrobatic skills depicted in the form of slack-lining in the sculptures, such as: “The Little Gondolier” or “The Acrobat with the Chair”.
Nowadays, his work is highly appreciated among outstanding fine arts experts and critics. He is invited for many exhibitions and we may watch his works of art in many galleries all around the world. „Jotka” has also received many prestigious grants from the Polish Ministry of Culture and Art as well as prizes and honourable mentions all around the world. He is a member of World Movement of Sculpture Symposium and holds the position of the vice president of Polish Sculptors.
