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.
