Osgemeos, Brazil's most famous grafitti artists, open show in Rio

Great art show on in Rio. It's called Vertigem, and is the first exhibition to contain, exclusively, works by twin brothers Gustavo and Otávio Pandolfo, a.k.a. osgemeos. The show is at CCBB Rio de Janeiro, and contains painting, sculptures, sound objects that can be played by the public and an oversize mural.

The famous yellow-skinned characters with eyes set wide apart that inhabit their art are instantly recognizeable and at once quaint and oddly disturbing. I just love their colorful, off-kilter look.
