Fred Campoy was born in Pau, France, in 1973.
After studying art for two years he started an art studio with his childhood friend Roland Pignault. They studied and worked independently for three more years before signing their first Franco-Belgian comic: Arcanes (Delcourt, 1998). This album reflects Fred’s love of action comics, adventure and comics-inspired graphics.
He then went on to publish two volumes of a parody western with Will Lupano called Little Big Joe (Delcourt, 2000-2002).
It is with his brother Bruno and another childhood friend, Olivier Paille, that he brought an old project to life: the science-fantasy trilogy SHRÖG (Vents d’Ouest, 2005-2007), followed by Kookaburra Universe tome II (Soleil, 2009).
