He exhibited independently from 1967 (Youth Gallery and Mánes in Prague), up to 1971 (Youth Gallery in Bratislava) he organized four independent exhibitions. Normalization officials, however, struck him off the official art scene. Another independent exhibition of his works was held as late as 1994 in the prestigious Gallery of Modern Art at Roudnice nad Labem. Since this event he has independently presented himself in a number of other major galleries, including the Mánes exhibition hall in Prague (1999), Klatovy/Klenová Gallery in the Plzeň Region (1999) and the West Bohemian Gallery in Plzeň (2006). From 1966 till the present time (with a long break due to the normalization period) he has participated in innumerable group exhibitions, at which he also presented his graphic and drawing works (among other exhibitions, he participated in the exhibition of current Czechoslovak graphic arts in Canada’s Ottawa in 1968). Since 1996 he has been a regular participant in the International (formerly Central European) Drawing Biennial in Plzeň. For his graphic works he received prizes at the Prague Salon in 1967 (2nd prize), Graphic Arts Biennial in Jihlava in 1968 (1st prize) and at the 1st Central European Drawing Biennial in Plzeň in 1996 (the main prize). His works form part of the collections of major Czech galleries (such as the National Gallery in Prague or the Czech Museum of Visual Art in Prague), including the West Bohemian Gallery in Plzeň.
