BIO

Born in Paris, Swiss-French Alexia Weill is based near Vevey, Switzerland for over a decade.  She studied film direction then drawing and sculpture at the world renown Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris. The artist brings out the spirit of a stone. Before sculpting each poetic piece, the artist communicates with the raw stone and harmonizes herself along with the project, and effortlessly delivers a one-of-a-kind priceless work-of-art.​ Her art is known by her circular impressions, circles like mandalas curved in any kind of stone, marble, granite, serpentine, limestone, basalt, she likes to find herself in stone quarries.

Her sculptures have been exhibited all over the world, including Switzerland, France, Great-Britain, Spain, Italy, Luxembourg, Dubai and New York.

In 2015, she received her first public order for the 800 years of the Commune of Villeneuve by creating a sculpture for the new medieval garden.

In 2017 she presented “Circles of origins” at the Biennale of Montreux, installed in Villeneuve on the lakeside.

In 2019 she organized as artist, art director and curator, an exhibition with the Vaud Government  in Lausanne to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the women voting rights. She supports many causes and has been donating artwork every year for many years to the Red Cross to be auctionned at the prestigious annual Red Cross Ball in Geneva.

This year she presents at Montreux Biennial “The Wave”, for the first time in exhibition in Leman Lake.

Alexia Weill is also member of Business and Professional Women Lausanne and expert in Art for BPW Switzerland.
