Quirit is a well-known Belgian cartoonist, best known for his silly and low brow comedy. Born in 1953 in Tienen as Jean-Marie Mathues he studied as a chemistry technician at the Rijkshoger Instituut for Nuclear Energy in Brussels. On 17 March 1976 he published his first cartoon in Knack, but gained  a higher notability by appearing in Johan Anthierens' satirical magazine De Zwijger (1982-1984).

Along with his good friends Zak and Gal (Gerard Alsteens), Peter De Roy, Jan Bosschaert, Erik MeynenBenoît and Jan De Maesschalk he was one of many cartoonists who made a graphic contribution to Johan Anthierens' anti-royal book 'Brief aan een postzegel' in 1990. He was one of many Belgian cartoonists to make special cartoons and comics for Gilles Dal’s book "België, et cetera" (Van Halewyck, 2016), a funny look at the history of Belgium. His work also appeared in P-Magazine and De Gazet van Antwerpen, but has also been published abroad in the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant, the British satirical magazine Punch, the French publication Quo and the German paper Neue Revue. 

He is one of several Belgian cartoonists who are a member of the collective and website The Cartoonist, established by Marec, where Belgian cartoonists make their archived and new work available to the public.
