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 the Warsaw SGPiS before moving to Lublin to study Polish philology at UMCS. He returned to his family home in Boiska in 1991 after his father’s death to take care of his mother, manage a 3-hectare orchard, and dedicate himself to his passion for sculpture. He began his adventure with sculpture in the 1970s when he presented original carved chess pieces inspired by the highlander tradition with a chessboard forming the roof of a shepherd’s hut, as a resident of Puławy. He has had individual exhibitions of his work in Lipsk, Ostrowiec, Puławy, and Lublin. His works have 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, and objects of applied art.
His workshop is nothing like a folk sculptor’s workshop. He doesn’t work like most of them with an axe, but instead uses saws, planers, chisels, and knives. The themes of his works draw from literature, history, philosophy, as well as from life and imagination. His dream is to create his own sculpture gallery in his father’s old, historic windmill without wings, standing in a ravine in Boiska.
