Beatriz Milhazes is one of the brilliant artistic minds from Brazil. Her unique style rises from Brazilian culture and western Modernist painting.
One of the most celebrated qualities of her work is the contrast and the bright diversity of colors she uses. Artists such as Bridget Riley and Tarsila do Amaral have influenced Mihazes’s art.
Milhazes believes that art is essential for exteriorizing thoughts and feelings. She uses this belief in her art by displaying contrasting colors of different patterns, movements, and sizes.
With her implementation of many aesthetics at once, Milhazes communicates more ideas than one with her art.
Milhazes has had exhibitions in numerous museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. In 2012, one of her paintings, Meu Limão, sold for 2.1 million dollars at a Sotheby’s auction.
The art of Milhazes lives permanently on the walls of the Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Banco Itaú, and Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia.
