He will lead the Faculty of Art and Design for the following four years.
Doc. akad. mal. Josef Mištera - illustrator, graphic artist, painter, animated movie artist, university pedagogue, founder and until recently also director of the Institute of Art and Design of the University of West Bohemia. Josef Mištera is the founder and art director of the international summer school of art ArtCamp and of the international competition for high school students Teendesign. He stood at the beginning of forming the Pilsen Techmania Science Center as member of its board of directors and he works actively as member of the Pilsen - European Capital of Culture 2015 board of directors. For more than 10 years he has been member of juries for national competitions Graphic of the Year and Young Design, member of the UWB Scientific Board and chairman of the Arts Council of the late Institute of Art and Design. He has established the Gallery Above the Stairs and the Ladislav Sutnar Gallery including their exhibition programmes.

He works actively on development of the international relations and he has set up the Ladislav Sutnar Prize which is internationally renowned. His conception of the faculty and its strategy follows the legacy of the internationally renowned Czech-American designer Ladislav Sutnar, whose symbolic return to Pilsen, his native city, is also the merit of Josef Mištera. He is currently working on establishment of the Pre-Incubator and subsequently the Creative Industries Incubator in Pilsen and on establishment of the Ladislav Sutnar Museum of Design.
