Erik Desmazières is originally from Rabat, Morocco and studied at the prestigious Paris Institute of Political Studies before diverting from his political career. He then enrolled in Paris city classes under Jean Delpech. Engraving quickly became his method of expression and was notably encouraged by the New York gallery dealer Andrew Fitch. In 1978 he received the Grand Prize for the Arts from the city of Paris. In 2008, he was elected to the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris.
