Jean-Claude Michel

Introduction to Jean-Claude

Born in Bourg-en-Bresse in 1943 .

He took classes at a private school called the Studio Met de Penninghen between 1961 and 1963.

Between 1964 and 1968 he studied at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris (National School of Fine Arts), where he learned multiple disciplines. He then worked in different architectural firms in Paris.

Then, the publishing house Bordas commissioned the conception and creation of illustrations of human anatomy. This work brought him to the attention of the international pharmaceutical industry. Illustrative work on genetic and pathological mutations of numerous illnesses and their pathophysiology in numerous publications were the basis for a growing success. His graphic research made him a well-reputed medical illustrator.

Nevertheless, painting remained his favorite means of expression. For some years now it has dominated his activity. The poet has joined and surpassed the scientific illustrator.
