Alexandra Gestin is a French sculptor. A trip to Tokyo made her discover the famous sumo fights. Already sensitive to the curves of children’s bodies, the young artist is dazzled by the exuberant silhouettes of Japanese wrestlers. Since then, those half-gods will never leave her artistic world. Her sculptures are part of numerous private collections all over Europe, USA, Morocco, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Hong-Kong, Singapore, Japan…
Alexandra Gestin was born in a small town in Guerande, in France.
This young woman was soon washed away to other places, far from her native Loire. It was during her fabulous trips around the world that her passion for art exalted. While in north Africa she realizes that she has a strong passion for sculpture, while in Asia she was inspired by photography. She settled down in Belgium, where she feels at ease and can speak freely in her art.
The gesture in her art is beautiful, generous, and voluptuous. Her works are true to her style, as she always creates relief and dépaisseur. Flat drawing is not her field. She has an artists’ true instinct, as she loves contrasting intensity and delicacy, rigidity and vulnerability.
