Expecting mass attendance, Jeffrey Deitch hired a crack security team...

The two-headed Brasilian art phenomenon that is OS GEMEOS (Portuguese for "The Twins") brought their fantastic art circus to NYC when their phenomenal show of new work "Too Far Too Close" opened at DEITCH PROJECTS as the art party of the summer on Saturday nite. In it, identical 24-year-old twin brothers GUSTAVO and OTAVIO PANDOLFO have created a sprawling cityscape within superstar downtown art dealer JEFFREY DEITCH's cavernous Wooster Street space. Mirroring their psychedelic storybook street paintings that cover the city walls of their native Sao Paulo, Os Gemeos have expanded upon a smaller show of non-commercial work first debuted at the Museum Het Domein in the Netherlands in late 2007 and constructed an immersive dream world of paintings, sculpture, and large-scale installations that transport viewers from the jaded streets of SoHo to the deepest reaches of their prodigious imagination.
