Ethereal, atmospheric, hypnotic, and even healing, have all been used to describe the transcendent experience that is the art of Fannie Brito. Through sensuous blending of color, text, imagery, and emotion an internal dialogue of abstract expression between artist and media invites the viewer to see the world through the prism of Brito's soul.
Fannie Brito was raised in in Caracas, Venezuela in a family of art patrons, after being born in Carmel, California. Educated in Switzerland, studying Art History, and French, Brito also gained her doctorate from the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico. These varied cultural experiences influenced Brito as a multi-lingual world citizen whose art is layered with poetry, definitions and ideas, under pure pigment and brushwork, much like the layers of a human consciousness.
An Abstract Expressionist, Fannie Brito has been influenced by the work of Alirio Palacios, Mark Rothko, Robert Rauschenberg, Marc Chagall, and Anselm Kiefer. Fannie is based in Dallas, Texas where she was selected for the inaugural exhibition of the Latino Cultural Center and at the African American Museum.
