This season, Bel-Air Fine Art presents a vibrant sculpture exhibition around the Porto Montenegro village in partnership with the Gayo Gallery.
Since opening their first gallery in Geneva in 2004, the Bel-Air Fine Art group targeted a number of locations around Switzerland such as Crans-Montana, Verbier and Gstaad to display their collection of internationally acclaimed and emerging contemporary artists. From there, the groups pursued opportunities in Europe and the Middle-East with openings in Paris (Place des Vosges), Saint-Tropez, Cannes (rue dÁntibes), Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, Venice and Marbella as well as temporary locations in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Beirut and Miami Beach. This summer they bring a selection of contemporary sculptures to Montenegro for the second time.
Among the art pieces are the works of Alexandra Gestin whose love for sculpture became a passion in her early years. The artist draws inspiration from Asia where she discovered her first subjects.
Gestin developed an interest in sumo fights after a trip to Tokyo, and was inspired by the exuberant, large bodies of the sumo wrestlers. Each of her pieces is an original portrayal of sumo culture.
Gestin’s work has achieved a lot of success not only because of its technical excellence but also due to the artist’s very particular choice of topics. Gestin has enjoyed many successful solo and group exhibitions and her exquisite, unique sculptures are part of numerous private collections in Europe, USA, Africa, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Hong-Kong, Singapore and Japan.
