It seems like they put in the effort and time to create some of the best pieces we have ever seen from them. Take a look at all the amazing [...]

After that, it was time to check out all the art work – with the group show in the floor level gallery and the heavy hitters in [...]
The first time we caught Os Gemeos at a museum was at the CCBB of Rio de Janerio (covered).Â Then this summer, we hung with Octavio and Gustavo on the streets of Manhattan (here) as they created an awe-inspiring mural to share with the citizens of New York. With all the success they already had in 2009, it left us wondering whatÂ they wouldÂ do next? Well, great artists often seem to build upon their successes and now the Brazilian twins have stepped their game up again with [...]
