Danilo Omwisye (Zéh Palito)

…is an artist who has exchanged the ruins of castles from childhood dreams, for the broken walls in streets and urban non-spaces. He travels across continents through cities, to remote villages, in all weathers to bring his art to the people and to bring people together.

Zéh Palito is where artist and humanitarian collide. A product of the notoriously marked streets of Limeira -São Paulo-Brazil, the twenty-six year old artist. Started doing tags at streets in 2001 and this days exceeds the typical “street artist” classification; in fact, Zéh Palito has morphed his craft into more so of a communal unification, in a global sense.

His work has been shown throughout the world in places ranging from Argentina, Belgium, Chile, Spain, Germany, Poland, United States, South Korea, Thailand, Zambia and others more.

Beneath the paint, lives a fantasy world with everything is intertwined; Colors, forms, energies, animals, people and nature merge into a simultaneous existence and breathe together as one. Being also a constant quest to reinvent the evolution inherent to allude to the release of all the bad things, representing the equality of man and nature and animals as our companions in life cycle.

Making your audience stop and look at the world around you, then, is the human being who determines what is to come.
Such intentions he has not only mimicked but catalyzed within his art, exemplifying a harmonious state of being where in the colorfully enriched abstract and tangible concrete merge.

Zeh Palito shares its new visual mythology and thoughts about the future, celebrating the vitality and dynamism of this chaotic world, however poetic, here composed of bright colors, geometric structures, organic abstraction, dimensional variations full of exotic and mystical dreams.

    "bem...
    lendo o tu me escreveu pensei em 3 momentos...
    primeiro nosso tempo de infancia, onde brincavamos e numa dessas brincadeiras tu quebrastes meu cotovelo (coisa de criança, rsrsr) penso q se tivesse acontecido com outra pessoa eu teria ficado muito cabrero..
    a segunda foi a cena nossa na DP, onde me lembro até hoje quando vc virou pra e disse:
    - Mano eu sei o q eu quero, uma vinda até a DP e tudo mais não irá mudar nada, vou viver da parada, vou ser oq eu quero ser e isso não muda aqui...
    a terceira 2006 q susto hein Danilo, vc muito doente, fazendo os exames, indo nos médicos e nada, cada um dava um diagnóstico e derrepente sua mãe me liga e diz q vc estava internado teve q fazer uma cirurgia as pressas, foi foda...colei o hospital uma unica vez, pois, achei a pior coisa do mundo, ver meu amigo, uma pessoa q gosta de ser livre, gosta de andar, viver, preso na cama, onde quase veio a falecer, coisa de Deus, momento certo, bendita hora q seus pais te levaram num médico q conseguiu achar o problema, isso foi um baque tremendo coisa q não quero mais passa ok ...por isso trate de não ficar doente ok...
    DANILO RICARDO SILVA, power, pawer, pauer e agora zéh palito, grande artista, critico, atento, sabe o que quer, mesmo com os problemas recentes, esbanja fellicidade, sorriso, leva ao lugares a alegria contagiante de seus trabalhos, mostrando q todos somos crianças e não percebemos, todos temos desejos simples, mais q a vida nos cobra pra sermos adultos...
    uma amizade q começou na infancia, brincando, aprontando pelo bairro, crescemos e tomamos o mesmo rumo, ARTE da qual somos unidos, hoje adultos com algumas responsabilidades, mais com o mais importante, estamos juntos, somos amigos, fazemos as mesmas paradas e vamos onde o mundão nos deixar, pq coragem temos, dinheiro conquistamos o q nos falta é voar...

    fico muito feliz em ser seu amigo
    sempre estaremos junto...
    q venha esse mundão de Deus
    somos livres,
    somos amigos!

    BLESS!!!"

    "mucho amor, color, alegria y pureza =)

    algun dia quiero ser Maria Palito! y ese dia vamos a ver Amelie juntos, comer pizza y jugar a la escondida en algun bosque, perseguir arcoiris, dibujar en el aire, reir muito y hablar mezclando idiomas!
    tener una casa en la playa o simplemente acampar lejos un tiempo.

    un nuevo gran amigo.
    tan lejos pero a la vez tan cerca.
    pode cre, che!
    gracias por todo!
    buenas noches e infinito punto rojo de besos ;)"
