Jacques Resch (1945 – ) is a French born artist who lives in Africa.
He began painting as a child. At around three or four years of age, his mother entered his drawings in a contest where he won first prize. At seven years old, his mother enrolled him in art courses.
When Resch began looking at college, he met Jean Raymond Bessil, an artist and art teacher, who advised him not to enter art school, telling him that if his creative force was strong enough, than he did not need to take lessons.
