Ala Leresteux

Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
I studied Philosophy in Moscow State University (MSU) which for ever changed my perception and gave me endless range of themes for contemplation. After finishing university, I moved to Paris and, there, I understood that the best way to express my ideas is art. I was taking various drawing courses at l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) and educated myself by getting acquainted with the masterpieces from Le Louvres, the museum of Cluny, the Quai d'Orsay, Pompidou Centre,... I went through many different techniques but by the moment I am in love with ink pointillism. I am not sure how to define my art. For me it is each time a quest and research. Many different problems are grabbing my attention: philosophical, physical, biological,... and my art is my way to make different concepts clearer for me and to attract to them the attention of my spectators.
