Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes was born in 1960 in Rio de Janeiro. She is well known for her vibrantly colorful, kaleidoscopic collages, prints, paintings and installations which draw on both Latin American and European traditions.

Guggenheim Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain; 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan; and Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, MA to name a few.
