Beatriz Coelho (Porto, 1995), has a degree in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon (2018).
She was selected as a finalist and one of the winners of the Millennium Bcp Youth Art Prize Contest - Carpe Diem Art and Research 2018. She was one of the artists selected to integrate the 3rd edition of the book Portuguese Emerging Art (PEA).
His exhibition project the weather does what it wants and the clouds do not fly alone was selected from the Young Creators Contest 2018.
In 2019, he was in artistic residency at the studio of the Centro Português de Serigrafia, with the development of an editorial project.
Among other participations and in addition to her artistic practice, she regularly collaborates as an author of articles for the magazine Artecapital. From 2017 to 2019, he founded and developed the LAVA project – an online platform for integrated publications in the field of visual arts, consisting of opinion and information categories.
Her body of work develops from issues inherent to the frailties of the contemporary individual, strongly associated with a temporal dimension, in a language that starts from painting and extends to other disciplines, such as writing, tapestry, sculpture and art. installation. Having as its central theme the individual's relationship with temporality, an approach that involves reflection on the past is frequent in its practice (touching topics such as memory, nostalgia and/or the irreversibility of time); for the reflection about the present (holding, above all, with existentialist questions) and for the
reflection about the future (evoking ideas of anxieties and expectations). It is on this temporal thread that his body of work hangs and is grouped, in a language close to visual symbolism/metaphors, with a constant appreciation for the procedural issues of the disciplines he is experimenting with.
