Alice Valentina Biga

Alice Valentina Biga was born in London in 1987. At an early age she moved to her father’s hometown of Cuneo, Italy. In 2010 she completed a BA degree in Fine Arts at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, where she discovered most of the printmaking techniques she uses today. Etching is the technique she experiments with most, and which she uses to investigate the theme of the necessity of memory in relation to death. In September 2012 she exhibited her work in the Postgraduate Show at Camberwell College of Arts to complete her MA degree in Printmaking. Simultaneously she exhibited at the Mall Galleries as part of Bite: Artists making prints.
