Adolf Born


* 12. 6. 1930 † 22. 5. 2016


 

Adolf Born (born June 12, 1930) is a Czech painter and illustrator, caricaturist and film-maker.

Adolf Born was born on 12 June in 1930 in the town of Ceske Velenice on the Czech-Austrian border. In 1935 the family moved to Prague where he still lives and works.
During 1950-55 he studied at the school of Applied Art in Prague Department of Caricature and Newspaper Drawing, headed by Prof. A. Pelc. Since the 1960s his works have been exhibited all over the world.

He first became known to the public as a cartoonist. He published his humorous drawings in all the important magazines and participated in group exhibitions and caricature exhibitions, from some of which he brought back prestigious awards. In 1974 he was awarded a Grand Prix prize and proclaimed “The Cartoonist of the Year” in Montreal, Canada.

After censorship prohibited the publishing of his cartoons in 1973, he devoted more of his time to animated films, book illustrations and graphics. He merged graphics with cartoons and so he arrived at a new artistic expression. His cosmopolitan humour, his selection of topics rooted in the history of his country (Austro-Hungarian monarchy or the Rudolfinian period) and finally his special world of animals make him famous all over the world.

He made many ex libris, mostly by the technique of colour lithography. His pictures often mix fantasy worlds, people and animals. Apart from his graphics including well over a hundred exhibitions, and his illustration of literally hundreds of books including some international classics, he has been active in theatre costume and set design and in animated film.
