Os Gemeos

From the womb to age 34, the members of Os Gemeos have shared a conscience—both figuratively and literally—winning the world over with their graffiti in a tight collaboration granted to them by their matching DNA. Brazilians Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo are identical twin brothers who have created art together ever since they can remember, a living monument to the meaning of brotherhood. Always in visual harmony with their environment, their characters feel as if they really belong in the spaces where the twins paint them. The work is heartfelt, relevant and beautiful—
so deeply regarded that the pair have been beckoned internationally to paint walls, trains, even a castle.

Barcelona, Spain

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (I think)

Kelburn Castle is a large house near Fairlie, North Ayrshire, Scotland

"When we dream, everything we dream has yellow tones. This is something of ours, myself and my brother. We use it in our painting. We can't use another color. We have to use yellow."
