Artist and photographer born in 1983 in Orleans, France, Alexia Tailleur studied gold leaf technique in an Italian monastery before realizing her master thesis on icons, at the University of Toulouse. Today, she lives and works in Toulouse.
Her creation enhances private stories. Her subjects, anonymous or not, reflect her personal universe and are treated in the style of icons, using gold leaf technique. It generates a special feeling, like an aura, that highlights the subjects and allows the artist to reintegrate them into society and history, sanctifying them.
