Born on June 27, 1960 in Istanbul, Turkey, to a painter father and pianist mother, Cent Alantar spent his entire childhood in Paris.
From an early age, he developed a passion for drawing. He began studying architecture and, after graduating in 1985, took his first steps into the world of architecture with the Claude Franck firm. In 1996, Disney Studios in Montreuil hired Cent.
Despite his lack of knowledge of the animation world, Cent quickly integrated the layout department. He started out on the animated film Hercules, then moved on to the production of Tarzan and the sets for Kuzco. The studios then chose Cent to create all the sets for the short film Destino, his biggest project for Disney.
After the closure of Disney’s Montreuil Studios in 2003, Cent resumed his work as an architect and took part in a number of artistic projects.
