Jan Marek Celuch was born on January 4, 1947 in the village of Boiska Kolonia near Solca nad Wisłą. He completed high school in Solca and then studied for 2 years at SGPiS in Warsaw. He later moved to Lublin to study Polish philology at UMCS. In 1991, he returned to his family home in Boiska after his father’s death to take care of his mother, tend to a 3-hectare orchard, and pursue his passion for sculpture. He began his journey in sculpture in the 1970s when he, as a resident of Puławy, presented original carved chess sets inspired by the traditional Podhale region, with a chessboard forming the roof of a shepherd’s hut. He has had solo exhibitions of his work in Lipsk, Ostrowiec, Puławy, and Lublin. His work has also been exhibited in Germany, England, and Canada. The artistic expression of the sculptor is diverse and versatile. Wood is the primary material he works with. He creates individual figurative sculptures, genre scenes, bas-reliefs, as well as objects of applied art.
His studio is unlike that of a folk sculptor. He does not use an axe-like most of them, but rather saws, planers, chisels, and knives. The topics of his work are drawn from literature, history, philosophy, as well as from life and imagination. His dream is to create his own sculpture gallery in his inherited old, historic windmill without its blades, standing in a ravine in Boiska.
