Olivier Texier was born in 1972. Starting in 1997, over the course of 7 years, he self-published no fewer than 34 books, while working at city hall, not far from Nantes, where he still works today. In 2001, Le Dernier Cri published a selection of his erotic drawings (69 dessins sales), but he became famous with his strips Le Bar and Grotesk, published in the magazine Psikopat. Then he began to work more with underground publishers, such as Humeurs, Les Rêveurs (Mal Faits, 2008), Les Requins Marteaux (Mary et Jonny, 2013), and also with mainstream publishers, such as Delcourt (Croisière Cosmos, 2008). Olivier Texier is a member of the International Federation of Wrestling Illustrators with a Moustache, where he is a referee, after winning the title of Grand Champion in 2007. In 2017, he wrote Captainz (Le Lombard; Europe Comics in English) along with Yoann.
