...Brazilian twins Os Gemeos create some of the most iconic, instantly recognizable street and public art of any contemporary art in the world today. Or ever, if you want to really break this down. In honor of their museum exhibition at the Boston ICA opening today, August 3, we look back at our favorite street works from the 2x Juxtapoz cover artists. From multi-storied murals, to collaborations, to castles and simple characters hidden away in the depths of a city, Os Gemeos will continue to amaze and redefine what street art is.
Le collectif espagnol de street art ‘LuzInterruptus‘, très engagé dans les enjeux écologiques, illumine les rues de Madrid de ses créations qui invitent les passants à réfléchir sur certains sujets tels la pollution causée par les déchets mais...
Le street artist anglais Phlegm est de retour avec de nouveaux graff après son passage en Irlande, à Bantry. Longeant le cours des rivières, ses œuvres explorent un thème plus aquatique avec la présence d’étranges pêcheurs et autres poissons. A découvrir.
A new mural by Os Gemeos, a complement to their ICA show, covers the exterior wall of a giant air intake structure on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway.
In Athens earlier this year I attended the opening of an improvised gallery space for street artists. Athens’s built environment is covered in graffiti — predominantly hastily scrawled tags, but also ambitious, colorful, and often large examples of public art. Many of these works are very prominent, and some of the artists responsible have made names for themselves, both inside Greece and, in one or two cases, internationally.
Stelios Faitakis, for instance — a Greek artist who combines a Byzantine visual idiom with hot political content — had a mural prominently placed at the last Venice Biennale, and now has a flourishing career on the international contemporary art circuit. But at the opening I attended, two short blocks away from Faitakis’s earliest extant mural (now just a weather-beaten fragment), an art critic I spoke to insisted that the “golden age” of street art in Athens had ended 10 years ago. “You are among the ruins!” he concluded with a flourish.
Given our location — a 10-minute walk from the Acropolis — and Greece’s current economic plight, I thought this was wonderfully droll.
Otavio Pandolfo and his brother Gustavo, who call themselves Os Gemeos (Portuguese for “the twins,” which in fact they are), are street artists from Brazil. They have a sprightly, one-room show at the Institute of Contemporary Art, which is complemented by three murals around the Boston area.

The largest covers the exterior wall of a giant air intake structure on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway. It’s by far the most successful piece of public art I’ve seen in Boston in the more than four years I’ve lived here...
When the games are in town, street art abounds, with locals and visitors alike responding to the huge city-shifting influx of infrastructure and viewers.
For his part, UK-native (but international man of mystery) Banksy mixed in his traditional themes of war and oppression, or remixed them, as it were, in a fresh(ly painted) take on this global spectacle. Still, this work goes a bit beyond your typical Banksy pieces, incorporating actual objects in the mix...
Where are the new Banksy pieces? The media has been a buzz since the artist displayed two new photographs of graffiti that he created specifically in relation to the Olympics. A search around the web brings up nothing more than a few vague speculations about the location of his latest work and a fury of articles surrounding all street artists under attack from the police to paint over their Olympic pieces. Banksy is wise not to reveal the location on his site and includes very little surrounding imagery which could reveal too much spacial information. Freedom of speech should not be overlooked in order to appease paranoid beliefs surrounding the games.
The Olympic games in London have begun, even though many parts of London struggle to bring tourists into hotels and restaurants. More strange still, public transport runs it’s normal planned engineering routine with only minor delays. Things seem bizarrely normal around the city, a far cry from the years of preparing and stress that have surrounded the presumed influx of people and business, yet the police and several councils around London have focused their attention on quelling a small minority of street artists from creating work that may promote an alternative view of the Olympic games. Rather than suggesting that no graffiti that paints the Olympics in a negative light will be allowed they have seemingly decided to prevent a few artist’s from placing new pieces within a stone or a bottles throw of the Olympic site. This is a mild overview of what is really happening to several of the world’s biggest names in street art. Darren Cullen, who has previously worked for Adidas (a sponsor for the Olympic games), was arrested along with three other artists and told they were not to come within a mile of the Olympic site. The artists were arrest as a “preemptive sweep” to prevent what the police insist would have been criminal damage. Remember, this was a preemptive action by the police, sounding quite a bit like something out of the science fiction film Minority Report, where individuals were charged and prosecuted for crimes that they had not committed, yet were supposedly guaranteed to orchestrate. As it is still 2012 and not 60 years in the future, where the world is run by androids and prophetic criminal predictions, the technology to predict or guarantee behavior is elementary at best....
