About Jiri Borsky
Jiri Borsky was born in Dobrany, Czech Republic (then Czechoslovakia), in 1945. He spent his childhood in rural surroundings and at the age of 15 he moved with his parents to Prague, where he lived and studied for the next eight formative years.
Following the Soviet invasion in 1968, Jiri came to England. Soon he found employment as a draughtsman with Wedgwood and settled in the Potteries.
He married Patricia (née Garner) in 1972, and became a British citizen in 1975.
He enrolled to study painting at Staffordshire University (then North Staffordshire Polytechnic with studios in Burslem School of Art). Arthur Berry was the principal tutor. He graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in 1979.
Since then he has painted full time. Initially he supplemented his income with teaching, but has concentrated solely on studio work in recent years.
In his spare time Jiri enjoys organic gardening and is a keen amateur cook. Music (jazz, folk and classical) is another of his passions and frequently inspires his work.
Jiri has exhibited widely. Over 1,650 of his works (including drawings and watercolours) are in numerous collections in Britain, and abroad.
2012 Exhibition will be hosted by Barewall - The Jiri Borsky Solo Show - Barewall Studio 19th May 2012 to 2nd June 2012.
