Bea Last

I am currently based in Scotland and am a professional practicing Contemporary Artist, Mentor and Educator. I was recently awarded the Aesthetica Art Prize (Finalist) 2023 leading to an exhibition at York Art Gallery as part of Asthetica's ART NOW symposium. In 2023 I received a supported visual arts residency award, at La Providence Centre Catalan d'art Vivant Ille sur Têt, Perpignan, France through 10dence Gallery in the Netherlands as one of their resident artists.
Having previously facilitated the GSA Widening Participation Portfolio Preparation course I am currently working with UpLand to present VASS (Visual Arts Summer Studio) which will be in its 3rd year through 2024. Running concurrently with this I also mentor on a one to one basis and facilitate creative workshops for those on the autism disorder spectrum including other learning barriers.

My creative practice is process led. The journey. I create what I refer to as Sculptural Drawing Installations, pushing the boundaries of traditional Drawing to create more sculptural forms. The materials used tend to be salvaged, recycled or found such as newspapers, found objects, Biodegradable plastics – My sculptural Drawing Installations are a response to universal events such as conflict, crisis, mass human migration, women's rights and humanitarian issues.
