Daniel Melim, born in Sao Bernardo do Campo, Sao Paulo. Since 2000, he has been developing urban interventions using the stencil, rescuing this medium, whose historical burden is the origin of street art in Brazil.
Its production is characterized by the choice of locations, seeking deteriorated spaces that provide numerous compositional elements (color, texture, position). Part of these works are located in districts away from ABC Paulista (suburb of São Paulo), such as the Jardim Limpão Project, reaching an audience that usually has little access to art. In addition to street work, he has been presenting his painting - which was developed through the experiences of his urban intervention work - in galleries and museums in Brazil and abroad - such as Choque Cultural Gallery, AfroBrasil Museum, Latin America Memorial, Valencia Biennial in Spain, MASP and other spaces and institutions around the world.
He worked as an art educator in several social projects in Greater São Paulo and has been developing so many others in the suburbs of São Paulo. His trait also became an illustration for various publications such as Dear Friends Magazine, Le Monde Defish (Belgium).
