Osgemeos: In Between at the Frist

The Brazilian artist duo OSGEMEOS—identical twin brothers Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo—is internationally celebrated for their vibrant and playful street art, public murals, and studio work.

Through painting and sculpture, OSGEMEOS (the artists’ nom de plume; Portuguese for “the twins”) creates immersive spaces that blend wide-ranging influences, from folkloric and contemporary elements of Brazilian culture to graffiti, hip-hop, and international youth culture. Born in 1974 in São Paulo, OSGEMEOS progressed from clandestine street art to commissioned outdoor murals and art gallery exhibitions. Using a shared visual language, the twins often populate their works with a cast of long-limbed yellow figures with bold outlines, enlarged faces, and simplified features, telling stories of fantasy, family, social change, and how tradition and progress coexist in Brazil.
