Jiří Hůla studied mathematics and gymnastics in the 1960s at the University in Olomouc. He worked for Podnik výpočetní techniky. Meanwhile, he composed poetry, made geometrical compositions and wrote about the fine arts. In 1983 he founded Galerie H together with his brother Zdenek (who had graduated from the Academy of Fine Art) and that was the moment when his interest in art, exhibitions, and documentation connected.
Jiří Hůla does not believe his work to be solely part of the unofficial scene. From his point of view, underground fine arts never existed, as it is not easy to decide who was an official artist and who was unofficial. Any attempt to do so may misrepresent the history.
