The dissertation focuses on the street writers in the Sao Paulo city. One is about young graffiti artists that cover the streets of the city to leave written in walls, building and viaducts their mark. The work is seen by the Paulistana population as a degradation form of the urban landscape. The city decides to simulate the graffiti to brighten up the urban space and with the purpose to prevent this vandalism. It is argued, therefore, that complex relations between these two manifestation form in the city. The dissertation also approaches the particular way with that these youth assume the urban space for the establishment of meeting points. The writers provide ways to conceive the center and the periphery of Sao Paulo in dialogue with the dynamics of the metropolis. Although they are identified with the periphery where they come from, they have the center as important performance place. The research reveals how they establish relations, alliances, and conflicts between  other youthful groups in the city.
