São Paulo is like an open-air museum. This gigantic, crowded, commercially minded city is not on most tourists' itineraries. But, to me, this city is fascinating. São Paulo has the best graffiti I have seen anywhere in the world. It is creative, colorful, ubiquitous, and expertly executed; some is classically beautiful, and some is thought-provoking.
Alley in Villa Magdalena
Villa Magdalena, a lively, bohemian area of São Paulo, contains many fine graffiti specimens. One alley, running between Rue Padre João Gonçalves and Rua Belmiro Braga, is home to a particularly dense and excellent collection of works.
Not all of the works are two-dimensional; these two use real drink bottles and lids.
If you're thinking about visiting this alley, be aware that it contains a fair amount of rubbish and some unpleasant odors. In my opinion, the excellent artwork more than compensated for the smell, but I visited in the winter. Your experience may differ.
