Beatriz Carbonell Ferrer
graduated in Fine Arts at the San Carlos Faculty of the Polytechnic University of Valencia in 1997. She has been developing her personal creative work alongside other artistic, cultural and teaching projects ever since.

Passionate and dedicated to the professionalization of artists and all cultural stakeholders, as well as to promoting and introducing contemporary art to all kinds of audiences, Beatriz is a member of different associations that work towards these objectives both at a national and international level.

Beatriz’s personal work is based on observation and analysis of the reality in which she lives, exploring vital issues such as personal relationships, the need for others and personal and social survival.

Based on drawings and models, she feels more comfortable with three dimensions, which is why her ideas take shape through sculptures and installations. She is a perfectionist when it comes to the techniques she uses and has developed excellent skills in stone carving; she has mastered the processes of ceramics, wood, iron and bronze. She also follows the use of other materials and digital media and is always seeking to strike a balance between the message of the work and its beauty.
She has been invited to participate in international outdoor sculpture symposiums in different countries on five continents, creating large-scale sculptures in stone, wood and even ice on site for 20 to 30 days in front of the visiting public. These works can be seen in the public gardens of: Cartagena, Uncastillo and Camponaraya, in Spain, as well as in Argentina, Peru, Costa Rica, Cuba, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Wales, Uruguay, Brazil, New Zealand, France, Cyprus, United States, Turkey and Patagonia Argentina.

All the sculptures form part of the cultural heritage of each city. Likewise, small and medium-sized pieces are in collections owned by public institutions such as Llíria City Council, Benaguasil City Council, Burjassot City Council, Sax City Council, Pinto City Council, Propeller Club Valencia, Valencia Justice Department, Benidorm City Council, Aires de Córdoba Association, CEART of Fuenlabrada, Alicante Association of Doctors, Gran Turia Shopping Centre in Valencia and numerous private collections through the efforts of the art galleries she has worked with, mainly in Valencia.

Through her travels, Beatriz has created a group of four women artists who get together to share knowledge about art. Called Banda Ancha/Broad Band, members are Elsie Wood from Boulder, Colorado (USA); Brenda Oakes from Wales (UK); Constantina Iconomopulos from Buenos Aires, and herself. Their journey began in 2003 in Buenos Aires. In 2004 they met in Swansea (UK) and returned to Buenos Aires. In 2005, in Boulder; in 2009, in Venice; and once again in Valencia in 2011. They are still in touch today and are planning a new get-together as well as their first art book created by four artists.

Beatriz’s sculptural work is included in several books, including the Repertorio Bibliográfico de Artistas Valencianos Contemporáneos Seleccionado y Comentado; the Diccionario de Artistas Valencianos del Siglo XX; in the Història de Llíria 2010; and in Entre el pincel y la espada. La plástica riojana a través de la fiesta.

She has lived and worked in Logroño, La Rioja, since 2013.

Between 2015 and 2021, she created and co-directed the first four editions (2017, 2018, 2019 and 2021) of SCULTO, the only international contemporary sculpture fair.

Since 2016, she has created and produced the sculptures that are presented as annual awards for the Blue Red and Innova&acción projects of the Fundación Antiguos Alumnos at the Polytechnic University of Valencia.

Since 2020, she coordinates the educational department of the Botanical Garden of La Rioja, combining artistic development with botanical study for families and schools.

She opened her own sculpture workshop in Fuenmayor in September 2021.
