Bea Bonafini (1990, Bonn, Germania) lives and works in London. She studied at the Royal College of Art and at the Slade School of Fine Art of London.

Her works have been exhibited at Villa Berlugane, Beaulieu- sur-Mer (2020); Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Guarene (2020); Operativa, Rome (2020); Chloe Salgado, Paris (2019); Bosse & Baum, London (2019); Renata Fabbri, Milan (2018).
