F'Murr is one of the big names in French humorous comics that debuted in the 1970s. He studied Applied Arts in Paris, after which he specialized in drawing in the humorous genre. In 1971 he made his debut in Pilote magazine, where he took on a series of gags, called 'Contes à Rebours'. Two years later, he started his most famous creation, 'Le Génie des Alpages', again in Pilote and later directly in albums at Dargaud.
In addition to his work for this series, F'Murr drew other series, including 'Naphtaline' in Pilote and 'Porfirio et Gabriel' in Le Canard Sauvage and Circus. In 1974 he started 'Jehanne d'Arc', a humorous historical series published in Métal Hurlant. F'Murr also drew for Fluide Glacial ('Robin des Boîtes') and the Spirou supplement Le Trombone Illustré ('Les Mirrois de Marguerite', 'Ala et Lolli').
In the 1980s he worked for À Suivre, with 'Histoires Déplacées', his personal view on the arrival of the Sovjet tanks in Afghanistan, which was published in album under the title 'Le Char de l'Etat derape sur le Sentier de la Guerre'. Also for À Suivre, he made 'Le Pauvre Chevalier' (1990) and 'Les Aveugles' (1991). Throughout his career, F'Murr has also published several independent albums, such as 'Vingt Dieux, c'est le Synode' (Artefact, 1977), 'Le Petit Tarot' (published in Pilote, 1978) and 'Spirella, Mangeuse d'Écureuils' (Khani, 1988).
