- Artist Biography
Artist, printmaker, educator and social-warrior, Aida Wilde stands alone as an East London institution in every field she tackles. First and foremost a printmaker and artist, Wilde’s editions seamlessly bridge the gap between heavily graphic political cyphers and fine art editions that push the boundaries of contemporary print techniques, all from her studio in Hackney Wick.
Furthering her reputation as a polymath and passion for the arts, Wilde’s academic career has taken her from Lecturing at LCC to a residency at the Women’s (Art) Library at Goldsmiths University with her project ‘Empowered Printworks’ as part of the Being Human Festival. However, her presence and constant activity in the artistic community in London’s iconic Hackney Wick and Wilde’s established stomping ground has inspired and propagated an artist-led backlash against the rapid gentrification of the Wick. Some of her most famed work includes the curation and project leadership on the Lord Napier project for Hackney Wicked, uniting countless artists to transform the pub into a landmark and homage to Hackney Wick’s vibrant artistic past.
In addition to her tireless campaigning for women’s rights, gentrification and education, Wilde utilises her two decades worth of print experience to create boundary-breaking editions that defy all expectation and masters techniques that most printers are yet to grasp. Wilde’s work has exhibited internationally from Paris to Londons’s V&A museum, and more recently in a joint show with street artist Rowdy in Bristol.
- Artwork Analysis
This image is inspired by a collection of t-shirts produced in 2007. The use of animal heads has been a regular subject matter for me to explore and I wanted this image to be bold, graphic and commanding. The image, although not really 3D, gives the illusion that the image is jumping out towards the on looker.
A five colour, hand screen-printed artwork by the artist featuring a solid layer with a Gold printed background. The Gold ink is made from pure, non-oxidising bronze powders that retain their brilliance and density after they have been printed. The carefully sized half tone dots are layerd to give the “illusion” of being photographicaly reproduced in a tradional sence of a CMYK print. Each screen print is hand pulled giving every print their own identity.
