One of the (many) things I love about South America is the abundance of awesome street art. Beautiful murals brighten up the dullest of days, as street artists express themselves on blank surfaces all over the cities. This isn’t graffiti, far from it, this is art. More skilled with a spray can than I could ever be with a brush, I am continuously awed by street artists and their creations. Sao Paulo street art is an example of the best.
Where to Find the Best Street Art in Sao Paulo
In the trendy Vila Madalena neighbourhood, you’ll find boutique hotels, bars and restaurants – and the famous Beco de Batman. I have no idea why Batman lends his name to this little street, but here the walls are covered with magnificent art. Unfortunately, when my laptop was stolen in Ecuador I lost a lot of the photographs from Sao Paulo, but luckily I still have a few!
I love street art that is colourful and bright, especially of animals.
Where to Stay in Sao Paulo?
I stayed at Viva Hostel Design in Vila Madalena, just a few blocks away from the Beco de Batman and an awesome range of Sao Paulo street art. I highly recommend to stay in this hostel in Sao Paulo, it is modern and clean, has solid bunk beds and feels much more private than almost every other dorm I’ve stayed in. The hostel also organizes weekly events, such as group dinners so it’s a great place to meet people too.
