LONDON-BASED artist Aida Wilde, who has been a professional screen printer for 16 years, building a hand-printed clothing company ‘Brag’ and setting up a boutique and print studio in London, will exhibit at the Design Galway 2016 festival.
Born in Iran, Aida arrived in Britain in the 1980s as a political refugee. One of Aida’s works, Credit Crunch, is on a touring exhibition by the Victoria & Albert Museum. A World To Win: Posters of Protest and Revolution is currently exhibiting in the William Morris Gallery.
Aida has had a long career as an associate lecturer, and alumni, on the Surface Design Programme at the London College of Communications for 14 years. Her unique style expresses her ongoing battle to bring two alternative elements together, the graphic and the classical, through colour and imagery. Both her indoor and outdoor installation work features various slogans and iconography, and 'pop' themed artwork.
