Os Gemeos Bio

About The Artist

Os Gemeos is a collaborative street art duo comprised of identical twin brothers Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo ("Os Gemeos" is Portuguese for "the twins.") Using a range of paint materials and precise techniques, they create phantasmagorical works that typically feature their signature yellow-skinned characters, a vibrant color palette, and frequent visual references to both Brazilian folklore and the urban environment of New York. As young artists, Os Gemeos drew much of their creative inspiration from the burgeoning Brazilian hip hop culture, discovering tagging and breakdancing in the 1980s. Often described as Brazilian magical realists, they have been a major presence in the international graffiti and street art scene since the early 1990s, rising to prominence first in Brazil and later expanding their influence to the United States and Europe. In addition to public art and murals, the twins also create sculptural works, small-scale paintings, and installations, all of which are visually threaded by their signature dynamic style.
