Ronald Cyrille spent his childhood on the island of Dominica, where he was influenced by the landscapes, places, and culture of his parents, a Dominican mother and a Guadeloupean father. Later, after arriving in Guadeloupe, he began practicing drawing by creating illustrations, comics, and popular cartoon characters.
After completing his general secondary education, Ronald Cyrille earned his Master's degree in Fine Arts in 2012 from the Caribbean Arts Campus in Martinique, where he was awarded the "Jam Session" for young talents in Martinique that same year. Upon returning to Guadeloupe, he won the Start Prize from the Departmental Council of Guadeloupe in the visual arts category.
Over the past decade, Ronald Cyrille's studio art practice has been greatly influenced by the "street art" movement. He is open to the world and enriched by cultures, and wishes to share his art beyond his usual spaces. He navigates between the practice of vandal art and his training in art school, as well as between hip-hop culture and Caribbean tales.
He has exhibited in numerous exhibitions over the past ten years, and has been invited as an artist for the 2022-2023 cultural season at MACTe.
