Jiří A. Havlín is a Czech landscape painter and teacher. Born in the South Moravian town of Hrušovany nad Jevišovkou, he studied with the painters Josef Trouchl and Karel Novák. He graduated college with degree in fine arts and arts education shortly after the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia. The political upheaval interfered with his plan to concentrate solely on his artistic career. He became an art teacher, teaching drawing, painting, graphics, and history of art, while continuing to paint, especially landscapes. He also designed posters in the 1950s and ’60s. He exhibited frequently in Brno with a group of art educators from the 1970s. After the fall of the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia and the opening of borders, he began painting and exhibiting in nearby Austria as well as his home country. In recent years, he has had two solo exhibitions in the Austrian city of Laa an der Thaya, another in Brno, Hrotovice in South Moravia, the House of Art in Znojmo, the K-GALERIE in Kopřivnice in northern Moravia and the exhibition spaces of the ancient Spital in Jaroměřice nad Rokytnou.
