Os Gemeos Catalogue
Brazilian twin brothers Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, best known as Os Gemeos, are credited as leaders of graffiti and urban art in Brazil. Quirky, yellow, oblong-headed figures have become their visual signature. Their narrative paintings and drawings synthesize their everyday lives, one defined by the color and chaos of urban Brazil, as well as rural festivals, music and folk art-- all of which inspire fantastical portraits.
This book is published on the occasion of their exhibition at the ICA/Boston August 1-November 25, 2012. Paintings from the exhibition at are featured, but the chapters Studio Work, Drawings and Outdoor Work make evident why Otavio and Gustavo have risen to international prominence, both in the gallery in the streets.
