Sao Paulo - looking for graffiti wall arts

Did a search in vain on subject above.

Found a great deal of graffiti wall arts in Sao Paulo. My concern is personal safety (carrying pro camera gears etc) in these areas. Can those who are familiar with these place chime in? Please advise which place(s) are to be avoided, and which ones are ok to go. Thank you in advance.

Beco do Batman, in Vila Madalena is the obvious place to start. Quite a safe location. Downtown will be a bit more iffy so better to be in a group.

I quickly did a Google search for "tour graffiti sao paulo" and the first results seemed to be exactly what you're after...

I just asked my better half (she is from SP) and says (as RafKa ) already pointed out to definitely make your way to Beco do Batman.

In terms of safety, you will be fine but it is good to have a bit of street smarts - such as
  • plan your route before setting off so you know where you are going and do not look lost. Re-plan / review your route in shopping centres if needed.
  • Take your camera out only when taking photos and try to avoid walking around with them exposed.
  • If using a rucksack make sure you put in on with both straps to avoid the risk of something grabbing one end and making off with it.
Having said the above, Vila Madalena is considered a safe area. If you are planning on going to Sé or Vale do Anhangabaú it is not recommend to take your camera out as these places a quite near to Crackolandia and more rife with crime.

The Mercado Municipal is also a lovely spot to visit (not necessarily for graffiti) but would not recommend taking photos with a pro camera - as this is a very touristic area the crime rate is a bit higher.

If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to let me know and we will try to help out as much as possible.
