As always SESC are continuing to support the street art scene in Sao Paulo, I have already written several posts about how much I like SESC and think that everyone should know about these great places in Sao Paulo. Currently there is a Zona Norte Graffiti Artist project, called Grafiterritórios ZN, around SESC Santana and Santana Metro station, which is as the Zona Norte name suggests in the North of Sao Paulo. There are 2 walls which have been painted for the project, one by Apolo Torres and Marcio Moreno, and the other by Galo and Ignoto (see some of my photos showing examples of their previous work below). They will remain on view all day everyday until the end of August 2014, and the end of January 2015 respectively.
WHERE: Ignoto and Galo :Walls of the Paróquia de Santana, next to Metro station Santana (Linha Azul/Blue Line). Apolo Torres & Marcio Moreno: Rua Viri, next to Sesc Santana. (Avenida Luiz Dumont Villares, 579).
If your up in Zona Norte and on the lookout for street art, then you are in a good spot, you have the MAAU (Museu Aberto de Arte Urbano) and also the Parque de Juventude at the site of the old Carandiru prison, right next to the Metro station Carandiru is also home to some really nice pieces.. check out my previous posts on them both.
Additionally, SESC Pinheiros has had another recent face-lift, this time with the duo Robézio and Tereza Dequinta part of the Acidum collective having painted the two large walls outside the building.. see my photos below. This will remain until the end of August 2014.
And one i have not yet visited, as it is at SESC Campo Limpo which is quite some way out of town and involves artists such as Speto, Fefe Talavera, Fábio Cristo, Flávia Mielnik and Laura Gorski. The project here is called Intervenções na Arquitetura (Interventions in the architecture), so the artists have developed work specifically for different parts of the SESC Campo Limpo architecture.. This goes on until the end of the year.
