Beatrice di Girolamo

BIOGRAPHY

Born in Santiago Chile, 1969

Between 1988 and 1992 she studies Design at Universidad Católica de Chile.

In 1996 she graduates as a Graphic Designer with highest distinction due to her thesis project: “Nuevo Artes y Letras, suplemento para el diario El Mercurio” – “New Arts and Literature, supplement for El Mercurio Newspaper.”

After practising graphic design for 15 years, Beatrice accomplished several projects such as designing diverse logotypes, Jazz CD covers, brand design and art direction for virtualia.com,  amongst others.

But it is in 1998 when her design practises and art began to merge when she was given the task to design all graphic material for the Chilean Pavilion at the Lisbon World Exposition, working along with two recognised Chilean architects: Borja Huidobro and Roberto Benavente. In this same year she obtains a postgraduate degree in painting at Escuela de Arte de la Universidad Católica de Chile.

In 2004, Di Girolamo decides to step out of graphic design, and rents an artist studio in order to focus solely on art. During 2004 and 2007 she takes painting classes with several national artists, including Francisco Méndez, Eugenio Dittborn, Andrés Vio and Eduardo Vilches.

Since 2007 Beatrice Di Girolamo started to explore and expand her artistic practise, and shifted from canvas to wood as her main media and platform to further develop her artistic discourse.
