David de Brito

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.

His work is rooted in the traditions of Sao Paulo. It is the biggest city in Brazil, with a population bigger than 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 city’s most creative street artists and graffiti crews – Rui Amaral, Os Gemeos, Onesto and Vicio.
