A clear and intelligible critique of society, detached and with humour, is typical of Jiří Surůvka's work. It links his performances, installations, objects and paintings. He does not avoid political, religious or cultural subjects. In the area of performances in particular, Surůvka heavily influenced the Czech painting scene as well as other successors. He is a member of the Lozinski František, o.p.s. group and since 2003, he has worked at the University of Ostrava as head of the New Media Studio.
