He begins painting as an autodidact in 1941, with particular interest in landscape and still life, his early paintings are dark, with a predominance of black, dark green, purple and dull blue. The young artist moves to Paris in 1947 and dedicates to ceramics for several years, stopping painting for a while.Thépot resumes painting in 1950, moving gradually toward abstraction. His first abstract painting is dated 1951 when the artist finally abandons figuration. He meets Jean Deyrolle who advises and encourages him (1952), then Michel Seuphor (1954), whose long friendship is decisive. Thépot becomes then designer and manager at the Théâtre de Poche (Pocket Theater)(Paris, 1953). In 1955, the visit of the exhibitions "Glarner" (Square Gallery, Paris) and "Kandinsky" (watercolors, Maeght Gallery) impresses him to the extent to urge him to create his first polygonal gray compositions; the period that follows sees him develop this style without interruption for several years. Roger- François Thépot meets Jean Arp (1955) and many important artists of his time.Besides his solo exhibitions (Paris, Bruges, Brussels and Toronto, etc.), the artist participates regularly in salons and exhibitions from 1954: Salon of Comparisons, News Realities, School of Paris (1958), Hall of Sacred Art, Salon of Mai, "Construction and Geometry in Painting " (New York, 1960-61), International Exhibitions of Constructivism, Museum of Ceret, etc. He is a founding member of the group "Mesure" ("Action") in Paris in 1961. In 1964 he obtains a grant from the Arts Council of Canada and moves to Toronto, he teaches several years at the Ontario College of Art in this city, coming to spend his summers in France." E
