Jiri Borsky was born in Dobrany, Czech Republic 1945. At the age of 15 he moved with his parents to Prague, where he lived and studied for the next eight formative years and his first one-man exhibition was held in Malostranska Beseda, Prague, in 1966.

He came to England in 1968 and worked as a draughtsman at Wedgwood. He married in 1972 and settled in the Potteries, becoming a British citizen in 1975.

He studied painting at Staffordshire where, as a mature student, he was taught by Arthur Berry. He graduated from there with a BA (Hons) in 1979.

Since then he has been a professional full time artist. He is represented in several public and corporate collections plus numerous private collections in Britain and abroad. His preferred medium is acrylic as this supports his technique of working textures into the painted image, giving his work a satisfying tactile quality.

His subjects are many and varied and often have an intriguing and deeply considered story to tell. His passionate love of music is also often reflected in his paintings (some of his images have been used by the music industry on CD covers). The symbolic intertwining of two lovers is also a recurring image.

Jiri Borsky likes to be involved in the whole presentation of his work. He often makes his frames from pieces of wood that he might have found at some time, perhaps on a beach or in a garden. If he doesn’t create the whole frame, he will change one and re-patinate others. The result is a totally creative piece of work.

Over the years Jiri has exhibited widely and now it estimated that over 1,750 of his works are in collections worldwide.
