OSGEMEOS: too far too close at deitch projects


OSGEMEOS is the pseudonym of identical twins gustavo and otavio pandolfo, born in sao paulo, brazil. they began making art in the  streets of sao paulo and soon began exhibiting around the world. their work has evolved from large wall murals to smaller site specific works. in recent years they have transferred  their medium to galleries painting on canvases and making sculptures. they both also work as graphic designers and photographers. for ‘too far too close’, the duo have transformed  the gallery into a fantasy cityscape complete with buildings and street dotted with new  paintings and sculpture.
