Brazilian artists Os Gêmeos—a major force in public and urban art—are creating two, large-scale murals in Boston as part of their first U.S. exhibition opening Aug. 1 at the Institute of Contemporary Art. (Above: Untitled, acrylic and spray paint on wood panel. 110 ¼ x 82 5/8 x 5 7/8 inches)

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.

Não sou o maior fã de grafite e arte de rua, mas, como todo poser, conheço um pouco de Os Gêmeos – já vi algumas obras deles em exposições e na própria rua. Não preciso nem comentar sobre a qualidade do trabalho, né?! Esse mural em Boston ta incrível! Outra coisa banca do posto é que esse blog é gringo e sempre é bacana ver o reconhecimento brazuca lá fora.
