AIDA [Wilde] is an Iranian born, London based printmaker/visual artist and Educator and is the founder of Print Is Power (2013) and Sisters in Print (2016) Projects.
Wilde’s pre-dominantly, screen printed installations and social commentary posters have been featured on city streets around the world and are responsive commentary works on displacement, education & equality. Her Fine Art studio-based serigraphs are well collected throughout the world and push the boundaries in contemporary printmaking today.

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, Honk Kong Walls, Nuart Aberdeen, Art In Ad Places NYC and Build-Hollywood (Jack Arts) & UNCLE. 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 course and Foundation For The Applied Arts at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (2003- 2015).

Aida’s fine art serigraphy has been exhibited widely nationally and internationally. 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 Galway Ireland (2016) Her Credit Crunch poster was acquired (2009) and exhibited in the Victoria & Albert Museum’s touring exhibition, A World To Win: Posters of Protest & Revolution (2014-2016) curated by Catherine Flood. More recently exhibiting in Vienna’s Fine Art Academy, in Dark Energy, Feminist Organizing, Working Collectively (2019) and collaborating with Help Refugees UK “Choose Love” on a number of projects that was exhibited in Somerset House and Saatchi Gallery (2019).

In 2020, Aida was commissioned & acquired by the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to create one of her Iconic CHOOSE LOVE boat pieces of works for the Museums major exhibition, Defaced! Money, Conflict, Protest, curated by Dr. Richard Kelleher that opened in October 2022. Also in 2020 during the London lockdown, Aida worked on the international cross culture exhibition disCONNECT, a collaborative project with Schoeni Projects and Hong Kong Walls creating a pandemic related immersive installation which was installed in London, Clapham in July 2020 & a tenement building in Hong Kong October 2020.

Aida has been working collaboratively with The Other Art Fair (2017-20) in both at an Artist/Fair Features Project’s and in October 2021 co-curated/presented, 20/20: A Brief Survey, as part of their Featured Programming, that included 39 national & international artists as well as a curated featured event & workshop programming for the Other Art Fair [London] in the Truman Brewery.

Aida is an active artist within the Hackney Wick community for 14 years, where she creates responsive works to the dramatic changes that have been happening in the area, also curating the 2016, 48 hour artist take over of the Lord Napier pub during Hackney Wicked Festival as well as the coinciding urban community exhibition ‘Save Yourselves’ in October of the same year.
