A high-energy urban arts scene is emerging in Brazil’s biggest metropolis, making the ‘concrete jungle’, as the city is known, one of the ‘coolest’ places in the world right now. Exploring the relationship between art, architecture and skate, the Matilha Cultural Gallery (Cultural Pack) in the center of São Paulo is hosting the exhibition, Destroy and Create, until September 3.

A skater’s eyes are trained to identify the gaps and curves in the path, which ensures that the architecture of a city has an important role in shaping the sport. This show will feature the works of artists, architects, photographers and video makers, plus a sculpture created by Collective Noh, which actually serves as an obstacle for skaters.
