Czech, b. 1954

Founding member of the “wild youth” art collectives Mülheimer Freiheit and Junge Wilde, artist Jiří Georg Dokoupil is known for defying classification with his continually evolving artistic style. Exploring over one hundred different artistic techniques and experimenting with neo-expressionism, figuration, and avant-garde styles, Dokoupil can only be described as a postmodern artist. In 1989 he began a series of soot paintings, using the flame of a candle as a paintbrush to depict figures such as Jesus Christ. Dokoupil has also experimented with using a whip as paintbrush, and has incorporated other unconventional materials such as liquid soap and rolling tires into his work.
