Sao Paulo spirit on the street in the BK...

What? You thought "Too Far Too Close" at DEITCH PROJECTS was the only art show by Brasilian twins OS GEMEOS up in the NYC right now? Grinding away in the gallery for weeks before last weekend's opening, the bad boys of Sao Paulo still found time to bomb the walls of Brooklyn and leave a little street-level exhibit for the masses on the walls of the Power Brake Service shop on the corner of Clay and McGuinness in Greenpoint. They even took the time to glue fabulous pink sequins onto the shirt of one of thier characters. HAVE A LOOK: Read More

Even if identical twin brothers Otavio and Augusto Pandolfo—otherwise known as the Brasilian art duo OS GEMEOS (“the twins")—threw a new art show every month, we still wouldn't get tired of taking in their amazing fantasy slumscapes. This time, the Brothers P have landed in Madrid at PILAR PARRA & ROMERO GALLERY where they launched their new solo show, "Sonhei Que Tinha Sonhado" ("I dreamed that I had dreamed") a full-scale multimedia installation of makeshift building facades and fantastic soundscapes last week. What's perhaps even more impressive than the sheer consistency of the brother's art is their daunting drive which pushes them to create art on nearly anything they can get their hands on at a superhuman rate. Simply put, few people in the art world are operating at this level, take notes, people. HAVE A LOOK: Read More
