Jérôme d'Aviau


A precious man...a multiple artist.
At the age of 5, Jérôme d'Aviau was sent by his parents to the Paris Conservatory. He was lucky enough to be one of the guinea pigs of the new learning method in vogue at the beginning of the 1970s. He will never stop making music. Trained in classical piano, then jazz improvisation, he left the music school to start playing in bands, first on guitar, while never tiring of experimenting with all the instruments he could get his hands on.

He is currently involved in several activities, playing drums, keyboards, percussion and other machines, as well as making sounds for bands and animated films.

At the same time, after many years studying car mechanics, composite materials and architecture, he mysteriously finds himself designing video games.

Ten years and a stock market crash later, he left the sector and found himself by chance in comics.
Ten years, fifteen books to his credit and a sharp drop in his standard of living later, he left the sector and launched himself into animation.

For the past four years, he has directed his first children's series for television (Mr Lapin, released in September 2017 in France and shortly afterwards worldwide), done charadesign on a first feature film (Pachamama, released in winter 2018), storyboarded and animated characters on a second feature film (Marona, released in January 2020), participated in several shorts, documentaries and music videos.

Jérôme divides his time between the stage, the animation studio and his children near Bordeaux.
