One of Brasil's most notable artistic exports, OS GEMEOS, the twin-brother art team that started their careers on the walls of Sao Paulo and migrated to the white walls of some of the globe's most desirable modern galleries, have a refreshingly low-key show of drawings opening at Sao Paulo's Galeria Fortes Vilaça this Saturday nite, June 30th. Featuring 30 original small-format drawings, many of them studies for street murals kept folded in the pair's pockets and bearing marks of wear & tear (and the obligatory stray drops of spray paint), the show offers an intimate look at the creative process behind the pair's Herculean output. Visions literally pour out of the duo, day and night, and these worn scraps serve as mental notepads holding their visions in place until they can be translated to paint & concrete and serve as documents of their creative process with notes and captions inscribed in many of the pieces' margins. They're also some of the most affordable pieces of art by the pair, whose prices have justifiably skyrocketed in recent years. For a chance at them, move fast & contact the gallery directly through its website...
