Art Breakers

May 16, 2008

“Os Gemeos”, the Brazilian brothers whose murals and characters have become world famous in the so called street art world are planning on going BIG on a castle in Scotland.
“The twins” are from São Paulo, Brazil. They started to paint in 1987. They do a magazine, called Fiz, that reflects the graffiti and many other art forms from all the South American cities and their next step is put out a website for graffiti artists. They always paint together — the characters, background and letters. Sometimes, on some murals they divide the piece so that one completes what the other one starts. They materialize their thoughts and silence.

At first they were the same as the others, painting b-boys and generally staying close to the themes in hip hop culture. As time passed, naturally things changed. They never forgot the roots, but decided to go their own way.

Something that has been created with no intention of being sold will always be inspiring.
