Jiri Georg Dokoupil is a contemporary Czech artist. He was founding-member of the German artist groups Mülheimer Freiheit and Junge Wilde, which arose in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
He lives and works between Berlin(Germany), Madrid (Spain), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Plovdiv (Bulgaria), Las Palmas (Grand Canaria).
Dokoupil never wanted to be subordinated to a personal or a forced style. He never developed a uniform style that would allow the observer to recognize his work. Rather he paraphrases different preceding styles, plays with them and invents new techniques. His oeuvre today contains over 60 series and more than 100 devised techniques or styles.
