mixed-media, installation


Priscila De Carvalho (American, born in Brazil) is an artist working with painting, drawing, sculpture, site-specific and public art installations. 

Ms. De Carvalho creates a work that combines various media including acrylic, vinyl, permanent marker, pencil, photo collage and three dimensional objects adhered to the wall. The work combines the influence of Pop Art, Spanish informalism, the monumentality of mural painting, and a reverence for architectural forms. With these varied sources, the artist overlays a complex variety of objects and shapes together, creating a frenetic, laden, urban landscape. She is perhaps most inspired by the ever-expanding and sprawling urban growth in the cities of her native Brazil. Revealing the sense of a huge population constantly on the move, her installations are marked by intense colors and the lines of ever-present winding streets and stairways.

Priscila De Carvalho is a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship Award (2008-09), Aljira Emerge 10 Fellowship Program (2008), Artist in the Market Place at Bronx Museum (2009), Queens Council on the Arts Fund (QCAF 2009), and has been nominated for The Department of Cultural Affairs Percent for Art program in New York, NY (2010). She has been an artist-in-residence at Lower East Side Prinshop keyholder residency award (2011-12), Socrates Sculpture Park residency and exhibition (2011), Jamaica Center for the Arts and Learning Workspace Program (2009-10), and Sculpture Space Fellowship and Residency (2010). 

Her work has been featured in individual and group exhibitions in the United States of America, and internationally, including Socrates Sculpture Park (2011), The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA, 2010), The [S] Files/The Street Files, El Museo’s Sixth Bienal (2011), Bronx Museum Biennial (AIM 30 2011), The Jersey City Museum (solo, 2009), Praxis International Art Gallery in New York (solo, 2010), Gallerie 64 Bis in Paris, France (solo, 2010), Pulse Art Fair in New York, Pinta Art Fair in London, Deutsche Bank and various other galleries and museums. 

Her work has been reviewed by the The New York Times (August 2009), Art Aldia International (March 09), Art Nexus (August 2009) and many others. Ms. Carvalho lives and works Long Island City, New York.
