Pierre Schelle was born in Lyon. He wanted to become an artist since his childhood, but his parents pushed him to take on a more "serious" education. Thanks to an art teacher, Schelle took courses in advertising art. He eventually got a job at the lay-out department of the publishing house Semic, where he met Stéphane Rosa. Together with Rosa, Schelle began to work as a colorist for several series of the collection Série B at the publishing house Delcourt. In his spare time, he worked on his own comic, which was completed after five years. His graphic novel 'La Théorie du Chaos' appeared at Delcourt in 2001.
