Generation X

By Silvia Prada

A series of portraits of teen idols of the 80's and early 90's in Silvia Prada’s classic monochromatic nostalgia-meets pop art manifestos. Prada playfully chronicles cultural iconography with the ardent reverence of a teen fan mixed with the obsession to detail of an anthropologist and the refined hand of an expressive illustrator. Generation X’s celebration of this golden age is a fantastical glimpse into our past and an early grappling with stardom and popular culture long before the digital era.

This publication is the fourth in a series of artist books dedicated to b/w portraits.

Silvia Prada

Silvia Prada, born in Ponferrada, 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 at times a fetishistic representation of select defining moments and iconography. Prada stepped into the illustration and art scene in 2000 by producing works for the now-folded The Face magazine, and has since received assignments from magazine clients including V, BlackBook, Candy, Dazed & Confused, Fanzine137, and EY! Magateen. Her works, which include large-scale illustration as well as poster installations, have been exhibited in galleries and cultural institutions worldwide such as Colette, MOCA Shanghai, MUSAC and Deitch Projects.
