OSGEMEOS have created four new paintings in which the natural world and water are recurring themes. For the artists, water and sea life are tied to their childhood and family history. Their grandfather, a fisherman by trade, traveled to Brazil from Lithuania
by boat. Family memories permeate their dreams and therefore appear as references in their paintings in the form of oceans and drinking water, whales, fish, and mermaids. Water is also significant to the artists because it symbolizes life — we are born from water and it is essential to our survival.
OSGEMEOS is the collaborative art duo of twin brothers Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo (b. 1974, Brazil) who live and work in São Paulo. They are widely known for their large-scale murals; however, their museum and gallery work provides the opportunity to create environments and situations that more closely mirror the fantastical dreams the brothers have shared their entire life. Defined by a cartoon-like quality, their characters
typically engage in activities inspired by OSGEMEOS’ experience growing up in the São Paulo neighborhood of Cambuci, as well as world mythologies, Brazilian folklore, music of all kinds, vernacular expression and their travels around the world.
