David de Brito – when Sao Paulo and London Collide : 9 Dec./2015 - 1 Jan./2016

Street artist David de Brito is originally from Sao Paulo Brazil. He now lives and paints in London.
You may not have heard him but if you walk around the streets of Shoreditch, Peckham and Camden you will see his wonderful character Mr. Nap everywhere. David has also had his work featured in a video of east London hip hop/grime legend Wiley.
This exhibition will take you on an artistic journey from the streets of Sao Paulo to the heart of London. He will be turning the gallery space at the Rich Mix into a riot of colour and characters. To tell his story of migration, city life and partying, David will be exhibiting painted canvases, wood, walls and paper cups!
Mr Nap will be just one of a number of figurers featured in this exhibition. All are based on real life people David has encountered and drawn.
David’s work is a fusion of Brazilian and London street art styles.
His work is rooted in the traditions of Sao Paulo. It is the biggest city in Brazil, with a population of 21 million. It is a city full of contrasts, subcultures and one of the world’s centres of street art.
In the late 1990s, David learnt his craft painting with some of the cities most creative street artists and graffiti crews – Rui Amaral, Os Gemos, Onesto and Vicio. Now in London David is collaborating with some of London’s best homegrown talent.
If you even have a passing interest in street art then you will love this exhibition. And if you love London and have a passion for Brazil this exhibition is definitely for you.

Open House: Tues 8 December, 6pm
