Henri Reculé was born in 1970 in his mother's native country of Chili, which he later left for Belgium, his father's homeland, at the age of 14. He took illustration classes there at the école Saint Luc in Liege, the result of which was a full album, "Le Grand Veneur," created with Jean-Luc Sala in the guise of a final study project. This collaboration won them a competition held by Le Lombard, which allowed the pair to publish "La Legende de Kynan" (1993 Le Lombard), their first professional album. This was the beginning of a fruitful collaboration between Reculé and the publisher, which was confirmed with the five volumes of "Castel Armer," an epic for which Reculé took charge of both art and scenario. Then he met Stephen Desberg, with whom he published the diptych "Le Crépuscule des Anges" (Casterman), and then "Les Immortels" (Glénat). The pair of them continued their collaboration with Le Lombard with "Le Dernier Livre de la Jungle" (4 volumes in the Polyptique collection, "The Last Jungle Book," 2016 Europe Comics), with Johan De Moor on colors.
