Jean Lаrcher was born in Rennes, France, in 1947.

From 1962-1965, he studied typographic art in a school under the Paris Chamber of Commerce. Simultaneously Jean studied calligraphy and penmanship.

From 1973-1985, Jean Lаrcher worked as a free calligrapher in the suburbs of Paris. He was engaged mostly in: designing advertising posters, printed editions, and private orders both in France and abroad.

Starting from 1985, Jean taught calligraphy mostly outside France in: England, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, Tasmania, Finland, Norway, and Spain.

When international conventions were adopted in the U.S.A. (in 1986, 1993, 1996, 1999, 2002, and 2004), Jean Larcher was invited to teach calligraphy. Starting from the 1970“s, he has been engaged in the deep study of calligraphy and penmanship in France, in different art colleges and graphic/ design colleges.

He exhibited his works in more than 250 world exhibitions, mostly in English-speaking countries.
