Alexandra Gestin was born in Guerande, France.
She became inspired by the sculptural works found in North Africa and Asia. Gestin’s work has achieved a lot of success not only because of its technical excellence but also because of the artist’s very particular choice of topics, which are children and sumo wrestlers. Gestin had many solo and group exhibitions and her sculptures are part of numerous private collections in Europe, USA, Africa, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Hong-Kong, Singapore, and Japan.
She’s settled in Belgium nowadays.
