BIO

Jérémie Queyras was born in Paris in 1997 into a family of musicians and grew up in Freiburg, Germany. From a young age, he was surrounded by musicians and spent a lot of time surrounded by art, which has led him to explore the relationship between painting and music. This interest has culminated in various performances with musicians, in which he paints live on stage. In 2021 he was awarded 1st prize of the Goodmesh competition with Charlotte Spruit for their performance project combining music and painting.
In 2019 he graduated from the Art Academy London where he studied under artists such as Tai Shan Schierenberg, Brendan Kelly, Julian Wild, Suzanne Dutoit and many more. He was awarded the Leo Gallery Shanghai residency at the end of his Fine Art diploma. He is currently pursuing a Master in Fina Art in Transdisciplinary New Media at Paris College of Art. He continuously aims to push the boundaries of painting as a purely contemplative, timeless form of art by including new technologies in his works. Jérémie Queyras lives and works in Paris, France. He shows and performs internationally.
