Step into this street art haven and you're in for a “choque cultural” (literally, culture shock). Graffiti, posters, stencils and skateboard designs all turn respectable at this new school art gallery, housed near the quasi-bohemian enclave of Vila Madalena. Among the many offerings are works by up-and-coming local artists that encompass the multifaceted, multi-ethnic origins of Brazilian culture and São Paulo street life. Tue-Sat 12pm-7pm

Small but great gallery with loads of graffiti works. I bet Banksy would love to visit here! After here you can also visit the Batman Alley and also the Open Museum of Art of São Paulo City (Metro station Carandiru).

This small gallery is definitely worth a look, with new art works all the time, and a very friendly gallery director who chatted to us about the current art and social projects underway. If you like graffiti art, or progressive art, check it out! Please note the address of the gallery has now changed to Rua Medeiros de Albuquerque, 250.... More

If you really want to see the great low brow artists of the World you can see them all at Galeria Choque Cultural. They have two locations - one for shows and art prints and the other for originals. The staff is awesome and they really know their stuff!
