    Vincent Michéa was born in 1963 in Figeac, France. He lives and works in Paris and Dakar.


    After graduating from the École Supérieure d’Arts Graphiques et d’Architecture Intérieure (ESAG / Penninghen) in Paris, Vincent Michéa moved to Dakar in 1986. In 1987, he exhibited his paintings and photographs for the first time at the National Gallery of Senegal. From this exhibition onwards, he worked as assistant to the renowned graphic designer Roman Cieslewicz until 1991. Greatly encouraged by the latter, Vincent Michéa threw himself into painting profusely. Vincent Michéa also co-founded the label 100% Dakar and collaborated with DKR Studios throughout the nineties. In 2007 and 2008, he taught photomontage workshops at the Academy of Fine Arts of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since 2008, along with the painter Moulay Youssef Elkahfai, Vincent Michéa has been teaching silkscreen printing at the École Supérieure des Arts Visuels (ESAV) in Marrakech, Morocco.


    In 2015, the travelling group show Making Africa, A Continent of Contemporary Design presented his work at Vitra Design Museum, in Weil am Rhein Germany, at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona in 2016, and at Kunsthal Rotterdam in The Netherlands in 2017.
