4.5 85 Reviews | Add your review

Brazil’s largest and most populous city has garnered quite a bit of attention for its lively art scene over the years and art lovers will find plenty of interest in Sao Paulo. As the host of Latin America’s largest and most renowned art festival, the São Paulo Art Biennial, Sao Paulo boasts some serious art credentials, further cemented by world-class museums like the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), the Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC) and the Museum of Modern Art (MAM) and the Instituto Tomie Ohtake.

Street art is also a popular form of expression in downtown Sao Paulo and taking a walking tour of the city unveils mesmerizing works by local graffiti artists like Carlos Dias and Daniel Melim. The city even has dedicated street art galleries like Choque Cultural and A7MA in Vila Madalena and Vila Santana, devoted to encouraging emerging artists.

Along with its abundant graffiti art, Sao Paulo’s buildings have also become a canvas for artistic experimentation, awarding the city an eclectic array of architecture. Take a private architecture tour of Sao Paulo and you’ll see everything from the colonial Portuguese buildings made out of taipa to the iconic modernist complexes designed by Brazilian mastermind Oscar Niemeyer. Standouts include the striking bathtub-shaped Unique Hotel, the dramatic São Paulo Museum of Art, which appears to be perched on a set of giant red legs, and the geometric façade of the Edifício Eiffel (Eiffel Building).
