If Kandinsky, Mondrian, Miró and Warhol had a secret colorblind child, her name would be Silvia Prada.
Prada is an artist that shuns the digital boom and continues to work at her creative pace, creating unexpected, figurative, handmade illustrations.
She stepped into the scene adorning the pages of The Face. From there she went on to contribute for other magazines such as Dazed & Confused, V Magazine USA, VMan, Tokion, Blackbook, Hercules Universal and cult magazines such as Fanzine 137, Candy, and EY! Magateen. Prada has also worked with a select group of top-tier international brands.
Prada’s personal taste and passion for high/low culture transcends the printed page. She has been part of exhibitions around the world, presenting her work in Colette, Art Basel, Zona Maco, MoCA Shanghai, MUSAC and Deitch Projects as large scale illustration and/or poster installations. Her work is reminiscent of the golden ages of Bop and Tiger Beat, where doodling hearts with the names of your teen idols all over your Mead Notebooks or plastering those coveted adolescent posters all over your teenage dream bedroom was the norm. Collectors of her work include the Spanish Royal Family and members of fashion's elite
