I already wrote about the street art, skateboard and punk documentary series “DIY America” earlier this year, but yesterday I found that interesting Os Gêmeos interview you have to watch!
The identical twin brothers from São Paulo talk about their art and their Sunday painting trips as well as about the consistent further development of graffiti.
They started painting graffiti in 1987 and gradually became a major influence in the local scene, helping to define Brazil’s own style. Stylistically, Os Gêmeos are heavily influenced by the cryptic art of the São Paulo–based pixação graffiti movement as well as American hip-hop, which the twins grew up with in Brazil. The brothers have gained international fame, displaying their work in exhibitions in major cities in the US and Europe.
Every time I see new artworks by them, my heart beats faster. For me both are still on top of the international urban art scene…
