From its many museums to the multitude of spray-painted surfaces, São Paulo is a city that radiates art and expression. Nowhere is this characteristic more visible than Beco do Batman, or Batman Alley. The peaceful pedestrian walkway is located in the Vila Madalena neighbourhood, and offers a masterclass in the current wave of Brazilian street art. Colours bounce jubilantly off the walls creating a symphony of symbols and stories that are in a perpetual state of flux underneath the spray cans of local and international artists. Once you’ve toured the city’s considerable offering of art museums and galleries, don’t forget to get outside for a taste of art history as it unfolds before your very eyes.
