TAE’s Top Picks: 10 New Street Art Works in São Paulo
Our creatives at TAE are always on the lookout for the most rad and undeniably beautiful pieces of art from all corners of the world. One thing that caught our eyes is the city of São Paulo. Rich in culture and wildly populated, this Brazilian metropolis is home to some of the best street art you’ll ever see.
From local talent to international ones, many street artists try to leave their mark in such a vibrant and cool place. Over the past year, we’ve seen many artists do their own thing or collaborate with somebody, resulting in gorgeous works that are definitely a feast for the eyes.
In no particular order, here are 10 of the best that were completed in the past year:
Herakut and M-City
One of the most recent collaborations we’ve seen is a piece for the O.Bra Festival featuring Herakut’s signature characters and M-City’s unmistakable detailed hats.
The artist’s mix of monochrome with brilliant colors has made an appearance yet again, displaying a blend of grit and elegance.
Alexis Diaz and INTI
Brazilian Alexis Diaz and Chilean INTI collaborated on this piece for the O.Bra Festival as well.
Edoardo Kobra made a massive 7×11 meter mural of Einstein in the artist’s kaleidoscope style of art. In front of Einstein’s bike is ♥ = Eu + Vc2 (or Love = Me + You2 – a take on the scientist’s E = MC2)
Michel Japs and Will Ferreira
