We were very excited last year when Francisca Prieto took part in the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2011 with her work ‘Between Folds / British Birds‘. She was selected from over 11,000 entries to be hung at the Royal Academy of Arts. Since then, she has been busy with many exhibitions to her credit.
Born in Chile and since 2003, after studying for an MA at Central Saint Martins, is now based in central London. Initially, she trained as a graphic designer, but Francisca’s main enthusiasm is for typography. By deconstructing type to create her own three-dimensional interpretation, she has created many unique works. We are lucky enough to showcase some of her limited edition prints of her deconstructed alphabet, inspired by the Latin alphabet on Raw Dice.
Francisca’s latest exhibition is on at the Mall Galleries, The Mall (near Trafalgar Square), London SW1. Running from 26th Sep – 9th Oct 2012. Open daily 10am – 5pm | Free admission. As part of the Threadneedle Prize Exhibition, which is UK’s leading showcase for contemporary figurative and representational art. This exhibition will showcase Francisca’s representation of Paris ‘Between Folds / Paris 1831‘.
Francisca’s works are collected by many private clients, as well as in major public collections, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum (my personal favourite museum), the Tate Gallery and the British Library. I urge everyone to go and see the exhibition. I might even bump into you!
