 "I am a painter based in the Chilterns of South Bucks, UK. I produce realist landscapes and portraiture in oils. My landscape paintings reflect my love of being outdoors. I find wonder in atmosphere, depth, and scale. I try to capture this drama and the moods that light casts, honestly and accurately to my experience. I share the same attitude with portraiture, reflecting my disposition for accuracy of likeness. Drawing really is fundamental to what I do. I enjoy the simplicity of it. How lines can become shapes which in turn become 3-dimensional forms. Importantly how drama can be created through the application of light and shade.”

Jan Gaska studied Fine Art Ba Hons at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design (1994-1997) followed by Illustration & Printmaking Ma degree at Bucks University College (2000-2003).  He further developed his work in printmaking during a 2-year printmaking residency at South Hill Park Arts Centre (2004-2006). At a suggestion from a lecturer during his Master's study, he began to paint in oils. In 2016 he did a drawing scholarship with the New English Art Club.
