Artist of the moment… Brazilian mixed media artist Beatriz Milhazes

this artist makes really bright and vibrant works done for limited editions in print. She was born in Brazil in 1960.  Her parents were both educated as one was a lawyer and the other an art historian. She was born in Rio De Janiero in 1960.  She studied social communication and arts in her high school years.

The artist has had numerous solo and group shows including the Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.

She works mainly in acrylics and other mediums suitable for printing.

Here is a link to one of her galleries, around 26 images are on the site so its quite a find.
