Silvia Prada, born in León, Spain, lives and works in New York. Her work as an illustrator and decorative
artist is a monochromatic and geometric documentation of pop culture, capturing an at times fetishistic
representation of select defining moments and iconography.
Prada stepped into the illustration and art scene in 2000 by producing works for the late
The Face magazine, and has since received assignments from magazine clients including V Magazine,
Black Book, PIN-UP, Dazed & Confused, Fanzine137, Candy and EY! Magateen. Her works and large-scale
illustration and/or poster installations have been exhibited in galleries and cultural institutions worldwide
such as Colette, MoCA Shanghai, MUSAC and Deitch Projects. In 2012, she released the publishing project
THE NEW MODERN HAIR: A STYLING CHART, followed by the critically acclaimed solo exhibition
THE NEW MODERN HAIR in Los Angeles.
