After a childhood on the hill Montmartre, Jean-Pierre Ceytaire is a student of Condorcet High School from 1962 to 1965 and continued at the Ecole Danhier, from 1966 to 1968, studies that allow him to earn a degree in physiotherapy, a profession he exercises for fifteen years.
Jean-Pierre Ceytaire discovered painting during his military service. In 1986, he gave up his job as a physiotherapist, to further exploit his talent as an artist. Quickly, he directed his art on religious themes and manages to create a personal style, allowing him to hold several exhibitions.
He has held personal exhibitions since 1973 and group exhibitions since 1983. These have taken place mainly in France, but also in other countries, including Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Russia and the United States.
