Roger Somville studied from 1940 to 1942 at the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in Brussels and from 1942 to 1945 at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture et des Arts Décoratifs of Charles Counhaye. From 1947 to 1986 he was Director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Watermaal-Bosvoorde.
In 1951, he joined La Jeune Peinture Belge. That same year he and his wife Simone Tits founded "Céramique the Dour".
Best known are his wall paintings such as "Notre temps" (1974-76) in the Brussels metro station Hankar (platform 1A), and in the Université Catholique de Louvain in Louvain-la-Neuve, a work of 410 m² around the theme "what is an intellectual?".
