Jiří Načeradský

Jiří Načeradský is one of the main representatives of the Nová figurace stream, which formed in the Czech environment in particular in the 1960s. His works are based on a figure, which is however deformed in various ways and whose basic structure is shifted or transformed. Figures bear the meaning, often serve as symbols of certain emotions, instincts but also events or society-wide topics. Načeradský is also active as a lecturer and was the head of studios at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague as well as at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague.
