Os Gemeos is an art duo that consists of identical twins Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo of Sao Paula, Brazil. They have been a front runner in large-scale graffiti and murals for quite some time now.

They both started out painting graffiti back in 1987 and they helped to redefine Brazil's graffiti scene. A lot of the twin's work consists of yellow-skinned characters with exaggerated features, similar to the Simpsons. They aim to have a dream-like feel in all of their work that crosses the spectrum between fantasy and reality.

There latest work involves two large murals in Boston during the exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. This will be the first solo U.S. exhibition for the Brazilian twins.
