Roger Charoux was born in 1929 and takes his first drawing lessons in 1946. Ensues his first group exhibition in 1947, at the Town Hall of Curepipe, alongside renowned artists like Hervé Masson, Serge Constantin, and other young local artists. His first solo exhibition occurs in 1949, once again at the Town Hall. He is granted a scholarship by the British Council in 1947 and studies Fine Arts and Interior Architecture at the Central School of Art and Design in London, after which he comes back to his home country. His art, having transcended a unique mode of expression, no longer needs introduction. Neither does his technique; the graceful harmony of the lines, colours and inspirations arise.
