A joint collaboration between the Jonathan Levine Gallery and the Choque Cultural Gallery (Sao Paulo) is bringing Ruas de Sao Paulo: A Survey of Brazilian Street Art, to New York on February 17. As its name suggests, the aim of this event series is to expose Brazillian artists and their culture, as well as promote an interactive relationship with audiences. Funded in part by a benefit held last month, there will be a public mural project, live painting demonstration, art exhibition, and Brazilian-themed celebrations. The event will also feature video-mixing with Brazilian artists and their work.

On February 15, the Hiro Ballroom will hold a launch party for the show hosted by the Jonathan Levine Gallery and the Choque Cultural Gallery (Sao Paulo). The party will also feature DJ Greg Caz from Brazilian Beat Brooklyn and live painting, the results of which will be available for purchase following the event.
