Beatrice Zagato

Beatrice Zagato, from Padua, works in Italy and Spain. She was one the three artists selected to spend the month of October 2017 in London within Art Apartment's Art Residency London is Open.

Coming from the openness of Southern European cultures, she has been seeking that same openness in London, collaborating with local artists. In her journey she has discovered the complexity of a city where time is never enough and real dialogue and connections are rare to establish.

In a series of photos, she has documented the challenge of her encounters.

Beatrice has found the artistic connection she was looking for with London-based street artist Steve McCracken, whose art is inspired by everyday life, human encounter, and romanticism
