Jiří Anderle is born on 14th September in 1936 in Pavlíkov.
He attended the Academy of Creative Arts in Prague, where he studied painting under Professor Antonín Pelc and graphic art under Professor Vladimír Silovský. He graduated in 1961. The experience which he gained during his cooperation with the famous Black Theatre of Jiří Srnec, with which he travelled through Europe for eight years as a mime, had a fundamental influence on his work - he sees life and the world as a big stage - Theatrum mundi .
He has exhibited his works at hundreds one man and group exhibitions and won many national and international prizes. He is represented in leading world collections and museums f.e.the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the George Pompidou Centre in Paris. From 1969 to 1973 he taught at the studios of Professor Jiří Trnka and Zdeňek Sklenář at the Academy of Applied Art in Prague and in 1986 at the Summer Academy in Salzburg.
He lives and works as a freelance artist in Prague.
