In this episode
Os Gêmeos (Portuguese for “The Twins”) are identical twin brothers from São Paulo, Brazil. They started painting graffiti in 1987 and gradually became a major influence in the local scene, helping to define Brazil’s own style.
Stylistically, Os Gêmeos are heavily influenced by the cryptic art of the São Paulo-based pixação graffiti movement as well as American hip-hop, which the twins grew up with in Brazil.
The brothers have gained international fame, displaying their work in exhibitions in major cities in the U.S. and Europe, including Deitch Projects in New York and Tate Modern in London.
