Paulista Avenue completes 120 years and receive an exhibition of 20 panels. It worth a visit!

On January 25, Sao Paulo celebrates 458 years. Also this year, Avenida Paulista, one of the greatest symbols of the city, complete 120 years. To celebrate these two events, the artist and architect Carla Caffé created a series of 20 posters that make up a panoramic view of the Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo. The posters will be displayed in an exhibition held at the Cultural Center Funarte.

The exhibition "A(e)rea Paulista" has a panel 1.40 meters height and 11 meters long consisting of 20 posters, which show an overview of the avenue from the Vale do Anhangabaú until the Paraiso neighborhood, highlighting key monuments and Paulista buildings.

Studying topographic maps of the city, the artist decided to paint watercolors that show the contour of the region and streets that connect the landscape. The route passes through the neighborhoods Paraiso, Liberdade, Bela Vista, Higienópolis, Consolação and downtown.
