          Born in Dijon the 8th of August 1991, Jérémie grow in the village of Velars sur Ouche in the region of Burgundy. He began playing piano at the age of 7, guitar and drums a few years later. After studying at the Private school Saint Joseph, he completed a Biological engineering degree at the School Le Castel and then joined the University of Burgundy in Biology section.

           Not supporting the hyper-specialization of higher studies, Jérémie seeks to open himself to all the knowledge at his disposal during his journey. For him, the separation of scientific, artistic and literary knowledge seems an aberration. Studying the literary works, philosophical and then theological, he achieve at the same time a license in Geology, Chemistry and Biochemistry between 2009 and 2013.

He joined a Master in Plant Biology in September 2013. During his two years of Master, Jérémie realizes that the profession of researcher for which he has been formed does not suit him. Opening his eyes on a world of cold and mechanical science, he escapes at night in his colorful dreamy world. He intensifies his artistic work and his technique evolves.
