Dominique Albertelli is a French painter, whose work, containing elements of spirituality, has inspired written works as well as the recognised Chinese artist Chen Zhen. She is currently living and working in Paris.
A unique journey
Albertelli was born in France and spent her childhood travelling across the Indian Ocean and, later, the Amazon and South America. Her different travels made her open-minded and, later, led her to live, for several years, in complete immersion amongst Native American tribes by the Oyapock River, bordering Brazil and the French Guiana. When she returned to Paris, with the aim of perfecting her artistic technique, Albertelli decided to attend classes at the college of fine arts, crafts and applied arts École Boulle.
