"When I was a kid, heckling was my only distraction. »Sempé was born on August 17, 1932 in Bordeaux. Rather bad studies, dismissed for indiscipline from the Modern College of Bordeaux, he launched into working life: handyman with a wine broker, summer camp instructor, office boy ... At eighteen, he anticipates the call and goes up to Paris. He scours the newsrooms and, in 1951, he sells his first drawing in Sud-Ouest. His meeting with Goscinny coincided with the start of a meteoric career as a "newspaper cartoonist". Nothing is simple, his first album of drawings, appeared in 1962. Around forty will follow, masterpieces of humor perfectly reflecting his tenderly ironic vision of our quirks and the quirks of the world. Sempé is one of the few French cartoonists to illustrate the covers of the very prestigious The New Yorker , and today he makes thousands of readers smile in Paris Match. Martine Gossieaux opened a gallery in 1992 devoted to her passion since childhood: humor drawing. The one that interests him closely is the timeless, elegant design. She is the agent and editor of Sempé with whom she has collaborated since the 1980s. The gallery exhibits the artist's original drawings every year at 56 rue de l'Université in Paris, publishes original engravings and prints, books and regularly organizes major exhibitions devoted to it all over the world in museums and cultural venues. In 2018, the Jean-Jacques Sempé Endowment Fund was created by the designer to disseminate and promote his work.
