Beco do Batman (Batman's Alley) lies on a through-way of Sao Paulo's bohemian Vila Madalena neighborhood, calling out to spray paint-wielding locals to continue to reshape the artwork. While a graffiti alley may seem unsavory, it's simply an extension of the vibrant personality of the neighborhood, and is surrounded by tall upscale houses and luxury boutiques. Of course, Beco do Batman rarely looks the same on repeat trips as most if not all of the murals, tags and scribbles are covered up with layers upon layers of fresh paint. A haven for growing talents who seek some civil space to work with their canvas, Beco do Batman is an impressive sight that shows how graffiti can get along with urban design.
