Osgemeos: In Between at the Frist
*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 01/12/2020
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.
