Silvia Prada - Generation X


Comprising a series of portraits of teen idols of the 1980s and early 1990s, Silvia Prada's Generation X sees the artist mix classic monochromatic nostalgia with the pop art manifesto. Prada playfully chronicles cultural iconography with the ardent reverence of a teen fan mixed with the obsessive 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. Thanks to the brilliant Triangle Books (Brussels).
