ABOUT SILVIA

If Kandinsky, Mondrian, Miró and Warhol had a secret colorblind child, her name would be Silvia Prada.

Stepping into the scene as an artist that shunned the early digital boom and continued to work at her creative pace, adorning the pages of The Face with unexpected, figurative, handmade illustrations.
From these first assignments grew an impressive roster of magazine clients such as Dazed & Confused, V Magazine USA, VMan, Tokion, Blackbook, Hercules and cult magazines such as Fanzine 137, Candy, and EY! Magateen. Prada has also worked with a select group of top-tier international brands.

Silvia Prada’s personal taste and passion for high/low culture, as well as her work in the professional field in her œuvre has led her to take part in exhibitions around the world from shows in Colette, Art Basel, Zona Maco, MoCA Shanghai, MUSAC and Deitch Projects presenting her work as large scale illustration and/or poster installations reminiscent of the golden ages of Bop and Tiger Beat, doodling your teen idols all over your Mead Notebooks or plastering those coveted adolescent posters all over your teenage dream bedroom. The accessibility to her visual code has members of fashion’s elite and even the Spanish Royal Family counting in as collectors.
