Brazilian twins Os Gemeos have been creating some of the most colorful art on walls for decades. In a street art scene where artists are judged by the quality of their stencils, it is refreshing to see Os Gemeos consistently putting up work that is technically masterful and completely unpretentious. Their characters have a playful and fantastical quality, contrasting sharply with the urban decay they decorate in Os Gemeos’ native Sao Paulo. Recently, their transition to gallery work and sculpture has been seen them expand their scope into massive multimedia installations.
