Bea Policarpio is a Manila-based artist specializing in abstract and impasto painting. Since graduating in 2015 from Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in BS Management, Minor in Literature & Business Enterprise, she has pursued a creative life filled with food + art. From 2015-2018, she worked in marketing for Red Crab Group of Restaurants aopened her own restaurant concept with her friends called Lan Kwai Speakeasy & Hong Kong Cuisine, while simultaneously pursuing her passion for art.
As of 2019, she has become a full time visual artist and entrepreneur. Her artworks are spontaneous and expressive in her use of vivid colors and wild textures, yet each piece reveals a certain vulnerability and depth in their content. Currently, her artworks feature her fascination for ocean waves and interstellar travel. Tagaytay Art Beat 3 is her second group exhibit, the first being RetroPerspective: Ateneo Alumni Art Fair in 2016. She fully plans to keep creating art until she is grey and old.
More than anything, she started this blog for creative documentation. She woke up one day and decided it was about time to carve out her own space in the big melting pot of the Internet. She fills these pages with pursuits of things which deeply interest her, good art and good stories, and other misadventures to tell her grandchildren someday.
