Pierre Célice was born in 1932. At the age of 20 he met the painter Henri Hayden (whose work is also in the Art Collection) and began to work in Montparnasse. He began exhibiting in 1957. In 1965 he settled in Seine-et-Marne and in 1968 devoted himself to lithography. From 1979 he began also to create monumental pieces, sculptures and frescos. At the end of the 1970s he emerged from a long and difficult period, caused principally by his self-imposed exile in the countryside. In 1982 he returned to Paris and participated in several group exhibitions. He has exhibited regularly ever since.
