This will be Andre Ruiz de Freitas’s second solo exhibition at x-ist. Better known by his nickname Decolife, the Brazilian street artist presents previously unseen paintings on which he has been working for three years.
Decolife has moved away from spray paint in his most recent works, utilising acrylic paints instead. According to the artist, painting has been his preferred method of expression ever since he was a child. Even though Decolife is employing a new technique, he will still paint one of the walls of the gallery with acrylic paints in a performance of sorts, similar to the one that he carried out (to much acclaim) in his previous exhibition.
