Erwin Sowka was born in Katowice (Poland), where he still lives. From a miner’s family, he himself worked as a miner for seventeen years. When he was fifteen, he painted his first picture, moved by his admiration of nature. His works are in the collections of the State Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw and in museums in Bytom and Zabrze.
