Boris Jirků

(1955)

He Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts (AVU) in Prague.

Most of his work is of a figurative nature, with dynamic perspective and distinctive colouring playing a significant role in his paintings and illustrations. His work is a parable of the modern contemporary life through an original authorial expression. Picturesqueness, expressivity and oftentimes even absurdity of his pictorial stories leads to the classification and identification of Boris Jirků’s work with the Czech Grotesque School. For many years, he was teaching figurative painting at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, where he also acted as a rector. Currently, he is tutoring figurative painting at the University of Plzen and the Academy of Arts in Banská Bystrica, specializing on doctoral studies.
