Gérard Trignac was born in 1955 in Bordeaux, where he attended the Bordeaux School of Architecture.
After an exhibition at Condillac Gallery (1980), a 1st prize in drawing by the city of Bordeaux (1981), an etching grant from the Academy of Fine Arts (1981) and a stay at Casa Velasquez Madrid (1982), he illustrated numerous books, such as Tristan and Isolde, Ode to Paris, L´ Immortal JL Borges, and Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. Each of his prints begins with a detailed sketch which is then fully developed on copperplate.
