Pierre Alechinsky became a member of the Jeune Peinture Belge group in 1947 and had his first solo exhibition in Brussels. In 1949 he met Christian Dotremont and became a member of CoBrA.
From the 1960s onwards he became more and more interested in collaborating with other artists. Publications appeared by various authors, which he illustrated with mythical animals. His work was exhibited at the Venice Biennial in 1960 and again in 1972. It has been exhibited subsequently on many other occasions, including Documenta III in Kassel, the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. In the 21st century Pierre Alechinsky is as active as ever.
