Alessandra B-B, a professional artist from Belarus, was born in 1986 in Vitebsk. Small yet remarkable town of Marc Chagall, the founder of the avant-garde school. During her studies at the institute Alessandra won a scholarship in Barcelona with her project. One year in this Spanish city had a tremendous influence on her work. Picasso, Gaudi, its architecture, all this formed her further aspirations. Next ten years Alessandra lived in Moscow, painting, teaching and taking part in exhibitions, but she could not let go of her desire to come back to Spain. Since 2017, the artist has been living in Barcelona and working in her studio.

‘I’ve been studying how time alters fruit and vegetables from growth to decay and how they change depending on the conditions. I re-assessed my body not to be young and full of vitality forever. It will decay. Society conditioned us to think the process of decay is shameful and depressing. I am fascinated by ageing and the transformation of not only my physical body but my life experiences. I want every woman in the world to appreciate every stage of life, to love their bodies and natural changes’

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"

Cheryl | London
