Beatrice Scharf-Pierzchala

Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist working predominantly in film, photography and painting.


Since graduating from the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Bea has worked on videos for artists such as Ouri, No Joy, Yes Mccan and Patrick Watson. Her photographs have appeared in magazines and she has had collaborative work featured in TIFF's Wavelengths programming. Drawn to intimate human experiences, her focus is to create playful and inclusive work with a strong emphasis on visual experimentation while exploring themes of love, magic, and the surreal qualities of everyday life.
