The Genius of Osgemeos

Two of the most famous street artists in the world happen to be twin brothers from Brazil known as Osgemeos or The Twins. Osgemeos are also first generation Brazilian bboys/writers and Hiphopers from the 80’s. The Twins art work can be seen across the world in huge buildings, bridges and canvases. Their work now sells in the tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. In Brazil, Osgemeos are so iconic they have been hired to paint Brazil’s national team air plane for the upcoming FIFA World Cup!

The brothers still “get up” illegally across the world. Destroying all lines. We encourage you to look up more of their work and follow them on Instagram @Osgemeos
