About

Aida [Wilde] is an Iranian born, London based printmaker/visual artist and educator.  Wilde’s pre-dominately, screen printed installations and social commentary posters have been featured on city streets around the world and are responsive works on gentrification, education & equality.
Wilde’s indoor and outdoor installation work features various slogans and iconograph and ‘pop’ themed artwork. Her outdoor billboard and public art installations include, Shangri-La at Glastonbury Festival, Wood Street Walls, Adblock, Bristol’s Berg Arts Project & Croydon Rise Festival. Her HASHTAG series has been used in subversive projects with Brandalism in Paris to highlight climate change in response to the COP21 Summit, as well as the global project Subvert The City, the world’s first coordinated international ad takeover.

Wilde’s academic career includes, associate lecturer, course director and alumni, on the Surface Design and Foundation of Applied Arts at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts (2004 – 2015).  She is known for her curation of some of the UK’s leading street artists and is the founder of Sisters in Print a  collective of opinionated national and international female artists, who share the love of print and print making.

Aida’s fine art serigraphy has been exhibited internationally and her largest body of screen print editions are available from Nelly Duff Gallery, London. Her residency at the Women’s Art Library at Goldsmiths titled Empowered PrintWorks (2015) was exhibited as part of the WARM Guerrillas: Feminist Visions exhibition in Minneapolis’s Grain Belt Botteling House Gallery (2016). In recent years Wilde has continued to build on her seminal body of work exhibited in her solo show HABROS, Sheffield.  Wilde was key exhibitor & speaker at Design Gallway Ireland (2016) and more recently with the Rowdy & Wilde show (2017) at Clifton Fine Art in Bristol. Her Credit Crunch poster was acquired and exhibited in Victoria &  Albert Museums touring exhibition, A World To Win: Posters of Protest & Revolution (2014-2016).

Now working under the umbrella brand of The Glorious House of Brag which includes, aidaprints.com & aidawilde.bigcartel.com, Aida presents her designs, clothing & Screen Print editions as well as a consultancy.  Aida still continues with her facilitating role with various workshops and community projects through Print Is Power – Reclamation Nation & more currently, Sisters In Print (All female international print collective).
