Resume focusing on artistic activities

MgA. Michal Krysl (ANYMOUS)
born in Pilsen 1978, Czechoslovakia

I began to be artistically involved in 1994. The studies at The artistic-industrial Middle School in Pilsen helped me in creating large-scale paintings. Towards the end of my studies I started to be interested in Conceptual Art through consultations at AVU Prague. In 1997 I founded an independent association of artists Anymous Art, which tries to support especially young artists in realization related artistic projects, exhibitions, performances and multimedia projects. These activities lead to a regularly held festival of action art in the streets of Pilsen then in Prague-Berlin under the name ANYMOUS PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL I.- XIV. (2000-2014), which I organize since the year 2000. In 2001 I successfully passed examination into the Studio Video-Multimedia-Performance at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology. In June 2007 I finished with honors my studies for a Master’s Degree.

During my studies I made valuable contacts with (for example) doc. MUDr. Vladimír Novotný CSc. who was my academic advisor leading my theoretical dissertation, opponent RNDr. Václav Cílek CSc, Mgr. Miloš Vojtěchovský – Institute for the study of theatre and interactive media Philosophical Faculty of The Masaryk University in Brno, Mgr. Václav Malina - the director of Gallery of the city of Pilsen, Mgr. Marcel Fišer – the director of the Gallery Klatovy and Klenová, Ing. BA Milan Kohout – performer and a professor at Boston University in the USA, Anne-Marte Eidseth Rygh – the manager of the centre Tou Scene (Stavanger, Norway), Hanz Kropshofer – the manager of gallery Transpublic (Linz, Austria) and others.

Since the year 2000 I realize the artistic project ANYMOUS PERFORMANCE, which is focusing on the presentation of action art forms in the streets of various cities. I act as a curator, performer, organizer and a grant specialist. I am obtaining financial support from prestigious funds and foundations. In the year 2019 I founded the ANYMOUS GALLERY.
