A new favourite with the skate/graffiti/meeja crowd

One of a crop of new São Paulo galleries to have opened in 2011 – we also welcomed Transversal, Central and Pilar, amongst others – Galeria Logo is set in an extensive, versatile white space with a basement area that means two shows can run concurrently. It was formerly the home of Raquel Arnaud's gallery, and before that, the 1980s gallery Sudistrito. A favourite with the skate/graffiti/meeja crowd, Logo got off to a flying start with a series of ambitious, large-scale shows in 2011 and a dynamic young roster of artists – we particularly like Walter Nomura's complex, colourful, messy paintings and Flávio Samelo's striking monochrome photos.
