1958 - Born in Leningrad, Russia.
Sasha Belle, the painter from St. Petersburg, for decades has been entertaining "connoisseurs", "lovers" and "zealots" of art by means of hundreds of indemonstrable theorems. She is a master who elevates art to the rank of arithmetic clear combinations and overturns it to chaos of mysterious joints.
There are uncommon moments in life of an art-critic when he finds himself to be defenseless, barren of his customary weapons in front of a piece of art, which is not to be evaluated, described, praised or criticized. Art contains something in front of which each of us feels like it would be better for him to keep silence. Since in that concentrated silence some clinking thread, which connects your unprofitable with something about the painting, which doesn't need any words. It's very much like love. Love is not to be prepared. Love is not to be spoken about. Love is to be declared.
Every time, some striking, frightening and thrilling sense of purity and authenticity of the sight arises in me. The simplicity of these paintings is deceptive. The elegant alloy of colours, which turns to be the substantial aspect of Sasha Belle's painting is hidden under the absence of plot, the symbolism of objects and sketchiness of figures.
Sasha Belle participated in more than 100 art exhibitions in Russia and abroad.
