Sao Paulo Brazil - museum and street stuff

    Some of the fliks from the museum installation by Os Gemeos and 2 other guys didn't come out that great, but I know I wasn't supposed to be flicking shit and there were mad guards with automatic weapons walking around. That twist/mune post reminded me that I had all this brasil stuff lying around. Anyway enjoy....

    Do you think os gemeos live off their art ?
    Are they popular in the international art comunity, outside the graff world ?

    That last character is by Herbert, aka Cobale. Great great kid and painter. Wow.

    That prodo up top is in as central a location in Sao Paulo as you could ask for. That and I was a week late showing up in 98 to be on it. Doh.

    Yeah, the Gemeos are pretty much pro artists now. But their profile is very low in Brasil. They don't talk to media there really.

    AST, two questions, one is the museum stuff from the Biennale?
    Two, a request, we should be in touch to talk about Brasil again.... I think I have your email still but if you think about it, drop me a note.

    news from SP

    " Toda a minha ilusão" means "all my illusion"
    The twins often intentionally misspell words in portuguese in their work.

    They do avoid the media a bit here, and prefer to let their work
    speak for itself. However, they have just gotten sponsorship to
    help cover the costs of Mural Global SP, and will at least have to
    cope with some media if they are to provide any exposure for
    their sponsor(s).

    Loomit is already in SP. The others arrive on Friday.

    The photo below is of a wall done by Vitche and a local inhabitant, waiting
    until 5pm when the local homeless shelter, called Glicério, opens.

    I photographed the twins+herbert+vitche installation one afternoon in the Bienal and security was really mellow, we used a tripod, photographed all we wanted, and weren't hassled at all. It was a big deal in the media here because the "established" artists felt threatened by their work/presence there. Very funny at the time.
