Denys Quistrebert was born in Guérande. He studied graphic arts and subsequently enrolled at the Pivaut art school in Nantes, where he studied graphics and commercial art. Having trouble to find a job after his studies, he started making short comic stories and submitted them to several publishers. Some of his stories were published in fanzines like Cosmic Tripes. It was during a festival that he was offered the opportunity to draw Joël Callède's script 'Comptine d'Halloween' by Éditions Delcourt, who published the series in three books between 2000 and 2002. Delcourt also published the team's second project, another thriller called 'Dans la Nuit', from 2003 to 2005.
Denys turned to Lombard to draw the series 'District 77', that is written by Jean-Philippe Dugand and published from 2006 to 2009. In addition, Denys has drawn installments in the Delcourt series 'Le Casse' (script by David Chauvel, 2010) and 'Sept' (script by Luca Blengino, 2011).
