The entire neighborhood called “Vila Madelena” in Sao Paolo, Brazil is known for its hipster shops, cafes, and most importantly: street art. First head to “Beco do Batman” (aka Batman’s Alley) which has graffiti art from some of the most famous street artists around the world! Every inch of the alleyway is covered with art, but make sure to explore the surrounding streets to see some more hidden gem art pieces. Pro tip: if you want the full experience, you can actually book a lesson with a local graffiti artist!
Place du Tertre
This little artsy area is located in Montmarte up by Sacre Coeur. You’ll find tons of art studios, little shops, and murals painted on the cute buildings. Every day tons of artists set up their stalls and will offer to paint your portrait (for a high price of course).
