Jan Repa was born the area of Zakopne, Poland, home of traditional glass painting and wood carving. Inspired by his family to pursue art (his father is a wood carver and his mother makes traditional highlander rugs and wall hangings), Jan received a degree in Fine Art from Antoni Kenar Art School and the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland. He also studied painting at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL. In addition to his paintings, Jan works as a freelance sculptor creating clay sculptures for casting in fiberglass, resin, concrete, plaster & bronze. His life-size Mastadon Statue can be seen in Phillips Park in Aurora, IL and his bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln can be found on the NE corner of Lincoln/Dixie Crossroads in the City of Chicago Heights, IL.
