Supertouch buddies Os Gemeos, the supernatural identical twin street art force from Sao Paulo, Brasil, wrapped up some huge new public works in San Francisco at the end of last year. Retracing their steps at legendary SF gallery The Luggage Store, where artists like Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Margaret Kilgallen, and OS G themselves got their start in the '90s, the brothers covered up their own greatly weathered mural above the building's rooftop dating from the mid-1990s with a gleaming new anamorphic portrait of a tagger emerging from the wall, spraycan in hand. Next up, they graced the still-skeevy Tenderloin with a massive-scale tribute to OG graffiti art inspiration Vaughn Bode via their mural of the late artist's signautre Cheech Wizard character giving a piggyback ride to one of their own imaginary friends.
