Originally from Poland, Beata Chrzanowska has lived most of her life in Chicago. She got her BFA at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design where she studied Integrated Studio Arts with a focus in painting and drawing the human form. Beata's works are compositionally, chromatically and geometrically conscious. They are puzzles that she builds from a single figurative line drawing. Once the first colors are placed, every additional color is affected until a compositional balance is created. The work exists to demonstrate a non-traditional execution of the flesh and sexuality, arising attention to the moments she finds most intriguing and inviting the audience to experience that same driven thrill through the femme. ​
