Vincent Gravé has a degree in European Graphic Design. He was a "roughman" for an agency from 1996 to 2003, and has been working as a teacher since 2003. Since 2000 he has also been working on comics, starting with the book 'Message d'hier' with Olivier Gardien for Fnac in 2000. Then came the four-volume series 'Relayer' with Éric Liberge (2001-2006) and 'Loin du mythe' with Charlélie Couture (2007) at Éditions Carabas. Gravé has published several graphic novels with Les Enfants Rouges.
With writer Joseph Incardona, he made 'Fausse Route' (2008), about a prison escape, and 'Petites coupures' (2009), about boxing in the 1940s. In 'Requiem pour un champion' (2009) Gravé and writer Bertrand Boulbar tell the same story from two different approaches, and the Marcus Malte-written 'Il est mort, le poète' (2014) is the story of a charismatic left-wing party leader. Gravé wrote and drew the graphic novel 'Jardins des vagabondes' (Cambourakis, 2014), and he has provided the artwork for comics about French sculptor and graphic artist Camille Claudel by Éric Liberge (2012) and the painter Monet by Frank Secka (2016), both for Glénat.
