Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1983.
Lives and works in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Represented by Am Gallery and by Athena Gallery.

PIPA 2017, 2018 and 2019 nominee. 

Moving through multiple languages, such as painting, photography, performance and video, Desali’s work is characterized by the subversion of hierarchies, both artistic and social. The waste of the city and the smallest memories can have artistic value, just as the figure of the artist is seen with irony and treated in a common way. He promotes contact between the suburbs, disadvantaged groups, and the art world, questioning the institutions and contaminating them with the street’s energy.
