Mind the Gap


November 30, 2013 – December 21, 2013

x-ist, Kemankeş Karamustafa Paşa Mah. Mumhane Cd., No:50, K:2 34425 Beyoğlu

In x-ist’s first exhibition of an international artist, young Brazilian street artist DECOLIFE turns the gallery space into his very own streetscape. As an important, but little explored movement in Turkey, street art gets a spotlight in this unique exhibition. Expect lots of colour, political statements and in DECOLIFE’s case, a casted eye on history and his native Brazil.

DECOLIFE (real name Andre’ Ruiz de Freitas) hails from São Paulo, which he left when he was 18 to travel the world and make street art. In 2010 he had his first exhibition at the Amart Gallery in Tatui-São Paulo, followed by numerous exhibitions across Brazil. He now lives in London and has presented at this year’s Contemporary Istanbul.
