All begins with the sketch. It's the moment where the first ideas are captured, and the shapes that will end up becoming a work of art are scribbled down. These sketches are the start of the creative process and show us what lies behind the final works. A kind of making-of that preserves all the spontaneity, freshness, immediacy, personality, freedom, and sincerity that is later transferred to the artworks.

Bea Sarrias shows us her preliminary work, where we can already glimpse some intentions. We observe an initial treatment of light, color, and lines that will define the perspective of her iconic paintings of recognized architectures.

Bea Sarrias

Bea is interested in architecture and the portrayal of iconic spaces. Her work, based on the works of important Spanish and international architects, has received several awards and her virtuous handling of light and shadows has been highlighted.

Her most recent projects include the large-scale portrait she painted live in 2019 at NATO headquarters in Brussels. Shortly thereafter, she undertook an artist residency at Mana Contemporary in New York, where she worked on the imprint that architect J. L. Sert had left in the city.
