A Visit to São Paulo’s Choque Cultural

São Paulo’s Choque Cultural represents some of my favorite artists — whose work I don’t get to see often enough. Among them are Titi Freak and Daniel Melim.  Here are some Titi Freak pieces I discovered on my recent visit to their space in Pinheiros:

Although I had to return to NYC before the opening of Daniel Melim’s solo exhibit, I did get to see some of his earlier pieces:
