Bea Bonafini is an Italian, London-based artist, currently studying at the Royal College of Art. She will graduate with an MA in Painting in 2016. Her practice is inter-disciplinary and often textile-based and socially engaged. Bea's work explores expanded painting through sculptural and soft paintings, sewn and knitted fabrics, immersive installations, participatory and spectacular Banquets and choreographed dance pieces. Her work is inspired by confrontation in interpersonal relationships, ritual processes and notions of the sensual and the visceral. Bea has exhibited at ART15, Cob Gallery, Cock 'N' Bull Gallery, the Place Theatre, Twitter HQ London, Tate Modern, Camden Arts Centre, Guest Projects Space, the Royal College of Art, the Slade School of Fine Art, Central Saint Martins, Mile End Art Pavilion and Rialto Theatre Cyprus.
