Os Gêmeos  is a Brazilian graffiti-artist duo notable for their large-format paintings of yellow figures. Blending influences of Brazilian folklore, hip-hop culture, political commentary, and personal history — many of their murals and paintings are centered on characters in a self-made fantasy world called “Tritez.”

Os Gemeos is a Portuguese word meaning the twins. The duo street artists are identical twin brothers, namely, Otavio Pandolfo and Gustavo Pandolfo hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Os Gemeos began their careers by being involved in spray-painting graffiti in 1987. Slowly but surely they began to gain large recognition in the underground urban scene. From then on, They have held numerous solo and group shows in museums and galleries in several countries such as Cuba, Chile, the United States of America, Italy, Spain, England, Germany, Lithuania, Japan, and more.

Vancouver, Canada, 2014

The Brazilian twins transformed a dark industrial area of Vancouver into an incredible open-air street art exhibition. Os Gemeos worked on six large silos in Granville Island using their distinctive, flamboyant and unique style filled with patterns and details. Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo converted the 75-foot-tall cylinders into a massive art installation for the locals to enjoy. This piece is one of Os Gemeos’ largest works.
