Prado graduated from FAU University in Sao Paulo, Brazil with a degree in Architecture in 1972. As a graduate, Prado worked as an architect and industrial designer and many of his works still survive in Brazil. In 1986 he curated Art in Glass in England exhibition at the Museum of Art of Sao Paulo (MASP), which was followed by Art in Glass in Japan, 1988, and Art in Glass in Sweden, in 1989.
Today Prado's work can be found in both public and private collections, and he is represented by some of the leading glass galleries in the United States. The theme of Prado's recent works are vibrant designs of cultural icons, scientific drawings, painting, and writings captured within a sphere of glass, where past, present, and future meld together with references to Al Capp, Carl Barks, Banksy and Basquiat.
