Meditation on Beatriz Milhazes' Vibrant Colors with Anjelika Deogirikar Grossman
Thursday, June 15, 5:00pm - :30pm PST
When I came across Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes’ paintings — bold, geometric, and full of vibrant colors — I was immediately drawn in. With her studio beside the Botanical Gardens in Rio de Janeiro, I learned Beatriz is inspired by shapes she discovers in nature. She works with the idea of collage in her paintings, using paper and fabric. She developed her own collage technique of painting acrylic on plastic that she named “monotransfer.” I was inspired to explore how I might translate Beatriz’s practice of collage with watercolor and my own painted paper.

Anjelika found her love for CfM when she was on the hunt for the perfect watercolors to match the landscape of Death Valley and Mojave Desert back in 2019. She loves typography, design and color theory and draws inspiration from textiles, political posters, and patterns found in nature. She is a scientist, researcher, educator and policy wonk.
