Paula do Prado is a contemporary artist working predominantly in textiles. Her work utilises traditional and non-traditional craft techniques to create hybridised fibre forms, altered books and photographic self-portraits fused with fabric collage, stitch and beading. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, do Prado emigrated to Sydney, Australia in 1986 where she continues to live and work. She is of African, Hispanic and European descent. Her work explores her experience as a first generation migrant and as a non-indigenous brown woman navigating Australian society and its ongoing and problematic colonial history. Although her work is highly personal and autobiographical, it oscillates between playful and tragic ambiguity to reference universal human preoccupations with belonging, cultural and gender identity
