Beatriz Zerolo (Madrid, 1975) has been painting since she was five years old. Since then she has been combining this early artistic vocation with her university career (ICADE Law degree), work in different companies and her family.
She has been trained in one of the best drawing and painting academies in Spain, Academia Artium Peña, and has the support of great painters and artists such as Maria Tarruella, Jose Luis Rodríguez Posadas, Luis Ruiz Del Arbol, Carmen Palomo, Pablo Luque, etc.
During her forty years of painting, Beatriz has gone through classical figuration, impressionism, expressionism, melted and glazed painting, to arrive at material painting. Using pigments, she obtains magnificent results, full of a special and personal chromaticism and balance in the composition.
In his canvases, both abstract and figurative, geometry and colour, form and matter, are not only means of artistic expression, but form part of the same work. The relationship between emptiness and hope, wound and salvation, darkness and light, smooth surface and crack, are in constant dialogue.

Beatriz Zerolo’s work falls between abstract expressionism and modern figurative art. Her canvasses try to rip the veil of appearance, making the underlying reality surface and bring light to the true essence of things. In addition, stemming from a deep understanding of the Spanish pictorial tradition –following in the steps of Ramón Gaya– Beatriz Zerolo proposes a direct dialogue with the most influential painters, revisiting and reshaping their works by deconstructing their styles.
