Step into this street art haven and you're in for a “choque cultural” (literally, culture shock). Graffiti, posters, stencils and skateboard designs all turn respectable at this new school art gallery, housed near the quasi-bohemian enclave of Vila Madalena. Among the many offerings are works by up-and-coming local artists that encompass the multifaceted, multi-ethnic origins of Brazilian culture and São Paulo street life. Tue-Sat 12pm-7pm
