AIDA [Wilde] is an Iranian-born, London-based printmaker/visual artist and educator. She is the founder of Print Is Power (2013) and Sisters in Print (2016) Projects. Wilde’s predominantly, screen-printed installations and social commentary posters have been featured on city streets around the world and are responsive commentary works on gentrification, education and equality. Her fine art studio-based serigraphs are well collected throughout the world and push the boundaries in contemporary printmaking. Aida’s outdoor billboard and public art installations include Shangri-La at Glastonbury Festival, Wood Street Walls, Adblock, Bristol’s Berg Arts Project, Croydon Rise Festival, Hong Kong Walls, Nuart Aberdeen, Art in Ad Places NYC and Build-Hollywood (Jack Arts) and UNCLE. Her HASHTAG series with Brandalism in Paris on climate change was in response to the COP21 Summit, and she participated in the global project Subvert The City, the world’s first coordinated international ad takeover.
Aida’s fine art serigraphy has been exhibited nationally and internationally. In 2020, she was commissioned by the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge for the Museum’s major exhibition, Defaced! Money, Conflict, Protest. Also in 2020, Aida participated in the international cross-cultural exhibition disCONNECT, a pandemic-related immersive installation in London and Hong Kong. Aida has been an active artist within the Hackney Wick community for 14 years, where she creates works responsive to the dramatic changes in the area. This includes the curation of a 48 hour artist takeover of the Lord Napier, as well as the urban community exhibition Save Yourselves.
