Brazil artist Beatriz Milhazes is really tapping in a trend in contemporary art where graphic elements overlay abstract work in a mix and match of information. So many artists are working in this kind of mixture that I wish I was cleaver enough to give this group of art a name.Really, this work is abstract and popular graphic images. She uses images that reflect simplistic versions of Brazilian cultural images. Sometimes decorative, this style of art piles up graphic upon image of graphic with minimal elements or abstract gestures laid under or over the designs. Two artists that I have seen uses this style is Nancy Brown and Murielle White.
