Micaël Queiroz was born in Paris in 1982. After spending 15 years of
his life in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he returned to Paris where he now
resides and works.
Micaël kicks with his right and draws with his left. By the age of 5, he
realized his true calling when his preschool teacher noticed he was the
only child in class who could draw a face from an angular perspective.
Years later he began to explore the humorous side of drawing guided
by Pati (Pagina/12), one of his art teachers, and he published his first
drawing after turning 15 years old. Micaël completed his high school
studies at the “Centro Polivalente de Arte de San Isidro” and continued
to develop his skills as an illustrator with artist Hermenegildo Sabat
and, as a painter, with Hector Maranesi. He produced his first individual
exhibit in 2001 at the “Alianza Francesa de Buenos Aires”.
Once back in Paris he collaborates with different magazines and
prestigious literary journals, including L’Imbecile, directed by Frederic
Pajak. He publishes for four years on Page 3 of Philosophie Magazine,
illustrating Alexandre Lacroix editorial.
In 2010 he publishes his first book “Un Argentin à Paris”
(Buchet-Chastel editions). The same year “La Familia Ilustrada”,
in collaboration with Laura Gutman, comes out.
In 2014 his second book "L'Air du Temps" was published in the
collection Les Cahiers Dessinés.
