SãO PAULO and its STREET ART

Batman Alley. This is an alleyway of true graffiti art, not mere graffiti.

It seems to be that street art and graffiti are no where as prevalent as in this concrete jingle of a city – São Paulo, where virtually no surface is left untouched.

On Batman Alley, the lengthy stretch of high-walls in Vila Madalena showcases some of the most impressive spray paint murals I have ever seen. The…

Emotional JOURNEY of TRAVEL

Sitting on a beach along the coast of Brazil onlooking the infinite horizon of water.

Paraty is apparently considered the capital of Brazilian diving. Paraty the favorite point for beginners´ baptism and for experienced divings.
