The artist's creation had to contain a relationship with football, without losing identity with her work; It was a time-consuming work. First of all, the artist had to consult her father about football. And even do a little research on flags. He finished it in 2005 and, in May 2006, he went to Berlin to sign the original.

I stuck to the traditional soccer ball [black and white balls] and with it I created a central axis for the composition. Around it, I drew five rings, each one representing a country, on its continent. From this axis, arabesque shapes form a type of 'dance' on the surface of the paper. A kind of 'ballet on the green'.

Beatriz Milhazes (born 1960) is a Brazilian artist born in Rio De Janeiro. Color is a fundamental element of his work, as well as geometric abstraction, flowers and arabesques.

From the 90s onwards, he stood out in international exhibitions in the United States and Europe and is part of the collections of museums such as MoMa, Guggenheim and Metropolitan, in New York. In 2006, she was the only South American invited to create one of the 14 official World Cup posters. Like music, the theme of football is recurrent in Brazilian culture: this work by Milhazes, colorful and cheerful, celebrates this popular passion.

A painting by Beatriz Milhazes, "The Modern", from 2002, was sold in 2001 in London for US$1.1 million (R$1.8 million), at auction. This value, now a world record for the Rio artist, surpasses the price of the painting "The Magician", sold three years ago at Sotheby's auction in New York, for US$ 1.049 million, or around R$ 1.68 million . Ultimately, Beatriz Milhazes became a renowned artist, increasingly sought after by Brazilian and foreign collectors. Her autographs are uncommon, this is the only one I have found to date.
