A family member who just returned from Sao Paulo tipped me to this constantly changing street gallery called Batman’s Alley. Brash colors, stark angles and superb art work, Rua Gonçalo Afonso is an authentic open-air graffiti museum.(Above and below: from the Flickr site of traveller Stephanie Sykora – who has a terrific travel blog, here.)
I’ve posted before about Sao Paulo’s serious reputation for street art (see that post here) but I was unaware of this all-encompassing walk-through experience. This video from the Wooster Collective is a good Batman’s Alley visual primer, simple and well produced. Too bad we don’t have something like this anywhere in North America.
