Silvia Prada is an artist whose figurative drawings celebrate gay iconography and popular culture. Her work as an illustrator and decorative artist has been described as monochromatic and geometric documentation of pop culture. In collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation, Prada released the book TOM (published by Capricious, 2018).
Prada created drawings in conversation with Tom’s personal collages and archives — opening the narrative to understand new nuances of sexuality from a woman’s perspective. Prada’s works and large-scale illustration and poster installations have been showcased in museums, art fairs, and galleries worldwide, including MoCA, Shanghai; Colette, Paris; and Deitch Projects, New York, NY. Prada lives and works in New York, NY.
