Ronan-Jim Sévellec was born at Brest in 1938 and was initiated in drawing, modelling and painting by his artist father at a very early age. His first drawings appeared in the press in 1960.
He has lived in the Paris region since 1967 and works as an illustrator, produces models for films (maquettes) and continues to paint and participate in numerous exhibitions. However, the artist slowly put painting aside preferring to become completely focussed on the volume.
The term 'model' is fairly inaccurate and limiting. Ronan-Jim Sévellec disappeared from the world of exhibitions for ten years to work on his volumes. He presented his boxes of surrealist inspiration for the first time at Elbeuf in Normandy in 1989.
His 1995 Paris exhibition at Galerie Soulié revealed him completely to the Paris scene.
