Born Otávio and Gustavo Pandolfo, Os Gêmeos (“the twins” in Portuguese) are a major force in street and urban art. They first came to public attention with large-scale works created on the streets of their native São Paulo, a city whose vast urban landscape have greatly influenced these artists. Along with their work in museums and galleries around the world, Os Gêmeos have created many high-profile public art projects in Brazil.
