Fabienne Yot

Art Gallery Owner

From Paris and after 15 years living in Madrid, I came 10 years ago to Barcelona. After owning an art gallery in the residential district of Barcelona, Sarriá, a year go, I took over the Artevistas Gallery. Located in the Gothic district, it is an incredible little passage for its architecture, and is located in the same building where the painter Miro was born. My gallery supports emerging artists from the local and international scene. It is very eclectic and mostly affordable pieces of art.

I am passionate about quality food products, most probably because I used to pick blueberries at my grandma’s garden in old Yerevan where we would prepare delicious pastries with them.

It all started in my house, when I spent hours and hours watching my mother kneading and preparing delicious dishes. It was then decided that I would enter the world of gastronomy: first in Galicia where I worked in simple places for travelers to discover Spanish traditions. And then I came to Barcelona to test my potential. In the city that has the best restaurants in the world, I’m looking to improve my techniques every day and invite people from all over the world to test my creations.
