Silvia Prada's (ES/NY) work as decorative artist and illustrator finds a natural home in both commercial and fine context (The Face, V, Fanzine137, Deitch Projects, etc.). Her formal language has developed into a singular style, often expressed in monochromatic and geometrically rendered observations. Her subject matter, though varied, is insistently pop in its lens. Her subjects are icons are ideas are ephemeral are monumental are marginal. Her practice is fashion and its opposite - enduring.
The New Modern Hair: A Styling Chart by Silvia Prada. Ed. Joakim Andreasson. This artist book features portraits of men and their hairstyles. A fond homage to the barbershop style charts of bygone days, it delves further into how something banal as a hairdo may become deeply codified as a marker of identity, tribe, and subculture. Juxtaposed with drawings reflective of the Bauhaus, De Stijl, and Constructivist movements, it's a romantic remix of representations, of the self and other. Numbered edition of 500. 28 pages, 10.5" x 8". $50. Add to cart
