Os Gemeos & JR

Os Gemeos and JR created a couple of installations located in the tunnels of the Palais de Tokyo Museu. During the occupation time (1940/1944) the underground of the museum was used as storage for all the pianos stolen by the Nazi.

Bunker

Os Gemeos posted a photo of their latest project “O bunker” on their Facebook page. It is their first ever permanent installation built for Museu Casa do Pontal in Rio de Janeiro. It depicts one of their signature yellow characters hiding in a bunker. The idea behind this project was to show the importance of preserving the tradition and the folk culture of Brazil. Bunker itself represents safety as well as fragility of what’s inside.

“It’s unfortunate to see such a scene, the Casa do Pontal Museum all flooded!! The largest and most important museum of folk art in the country has become part of the towns patrimony, with a collection of 8500 pieces in danger. The museum is located one meter below the newly constructed Media Village for the 2016 Olympic Games and after Saturday’s storm the rainwater flooded the museum. This already predicted catastrophe points to a total disregard by the government. How long will our culture, history, nature and society be mistreated?”

The Scarcity Of Water

New collaborative piece by the twin brothers Os Gemeos and JR in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Os Gemeos wrote a comment to explain the meaning behind this mural:

“[…] the scarcity of water is the reflex of what man and the bad administration of our politics are doing for years! It is the answer from nature to the neglect and disrespect from the deforestation and the pollution of our rivers, lakes and seas. We are all paying the price of filthy politics.”

Urban Art In Vilnius!

I’ve been to Vilnius, Lithuania a few weeks ago and as I was searching for the Os Gemeos’ mural I found more urban art on the way.
Most photos were taken by nightfall so it slightly affected the quality.
Enjoy the gallery!
