Beco do Batman or Batman Alley: The Graffiti Talent of São Paulo

We visited Beco do Batman (Batman Alley), the area around Rua Gonçalo Afonso and Rua Medeiros de Albuquerque in the Vila Madalena neighborhood of São Paulo to check out amazing artwork.

The nickname for the area is attributed to a graffito of the DC Comics character Batman which was painted on one of the walls in the 1980s.[2] Local art students began filling the walls with other psychedelic and cubist influenced designs.

The graffiti of Beco do Batman is now continually renovated and cared for by local community members.[1]
