Photography




Vicki DaSilva is a light graffiti and light painting photography pioneer. She has been making single frame time exposure photographs at night since 1980. She is credited with the term ‘light graffiti’ as well as being the first artist to make light graffiti text photographs beginning in 1980. DaSilva studied photography and earned a BFA from Kutztown University of PA in 1983. After an internship with video and performance artist Joan Jonas, she relocated to NYC. DaSilva was heavily influenced by the convergence of street and graffiti art during the birth of hip-hop as well as by the sculptor Richard Serra, for whom she worked as a part-time personal assistant for ten years. Her exploration of light graffiti and light painting as a multi disciplinary, time based art form anchored in the photographic process continues to push the boundaries of the genre into territories of performance and public intervention art works. Vicki DaSilva’s work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions at Art Basel Miami Beach, Able Fine Art NYC, HP Garcia Gallery NYC, Art Gotham NYC, Architectural Digest Home Design Show NYC, Center for Photography at Woodstock, NY, Flanders Art Gallery Raleigh, NC and Silver Eye Center for Photography, Pittsburgh, PA, among many others. Her work has appeared in catalogs including Light Art from Artificial Light, ZKM Museum for Contemporary Art, Karlsruhe, Germany. In 2011 Reebok commissioned her for their Miami Classic Lite project. Vicki DaSilva is a two time PA Council on the Arts Fellowship recipient for photography. Her work is in numerous private and public collections and can be seen at vickidasilva.com and on her blog at lightgraffiti.com.
