Alessandra Giacinti was born in Rome, Italy, 1975. She studied at Accademia di Belle Arti Rome and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
She works with drawing and painting. She is interested in imagery that combines the poetic and the everyday.
Her work draws from observation of her surroundings, as well as from imagination and dreams. Like in a diary, she records faces, objects, gestures and characters she encounters.
