Biography

New York-based artist Priscila De Carvalho is an artist working with painting, sculpture, murals, site-specific installations and permanent public art.

Ms. De Carvalho’s  visual narratives range from overly populated urban environments to a social, economic and political content. She juxtaposes her observations about the emergence and co-existence of sub-cultural communities, uncontrolled urbanization and contemporary issues that affect all humanity in the age of globalization. Her work combines the influence of Pop Art, Spanish informalism, the monumentality of mural painting and a reverence for architectural forms. Her images are collected from the realms of memory, documentary films and the internet. With these varied sources, the artist overlays a complex imagery creating a frenetic, laden, urban landscape.

Priscila De Carvalho is a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship Award (2008), (AIM) Artist in the Market Place at Bronx Museum (2010), Sculpture Space Fellowship Award (2010), Aljira Emerge 10 Fellowship Program (2008), Queens Council on the Arts Fund (2009) and Siddhartha Art Foundation (2013).

De Carvalho's permanent public art was installed at the New York City subway station, commissioned by the MTA Arts and Design program (2015) and at Richard Rogers Public School commissioned by Public Art for Public Schools (2016). She has been an artist-in-residence at Lower East Side Printshop (2011), Socrates Sculpture Park (2011), Jamaica Center for the Arts and Learning Workspace Program (2009) , and Sculpture Space (2010) .

The artist exhibited widely nationally and internationally. She represented Brazil at The Kathmandu International Triennial in Nepal, El Museo’s Sixth Bienal The [S] Files/The Street Files in New York City and Bronx Museum Biennial in Bronx, New York. She also exhibited at Artium, Basque Museum-Centre of Contemporary Art, Vitoria in Spain, Deutsche Bank, Nepal Art Council, Kathmandu, Nepal, Socrates Sculpture Park, Grand Palais in Paris, France, The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA), The Jersey City Museum and various other galleries and museums.

Her work was reviewed by the The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Hyperallergic, The Kathmandu Post, O Globo, Art Aldia International, Art Nexus and many others. Ms. De Carvalho lives and works in New York.
