Os Gemeos finish their incredible new mural for the Vancouver Biennale in Canada

September 09 2014 . 12:05am

After roughly three weeks of intense work, Os Gemeos recently finished their new mural for the Vancouver Biennale (Part I, Part II). The six large silos they painted on Granville Island continues their ongoing series of large murals titled Giants, and is now officially their biggest one to date. Covering the entire 70-foot (21 metre) tall structure, this incredible piece of work is their contribution to Biennale’s strong connection with sculpture.

For this non-profit public art project, Octavio and Gustavo Pandolfo have donated a month of their time, right after opening their recent solo show at Galpão Fortes Vilaça in Sao Paolo. The twins spent the final days adding numerous details to their characters – pockets, stiches, buttons, shoes, fabric patterns, all by using lots of bright colors and by painting more and more signature yellow faces. Using the architecture of the silos, the giants are all kneeling with four of them facing one way, and the other two facing the other way, giving the finished work a full 360 degree identity.

NECKFACE | DRINKING ON THE JOB at NEW IMAGE ART, LA

August 28 2014 . 10:00am

This past weekend in LA at New Image Art, Neckface opened a brand new show entitled “Drinking on the Job.” That said, the show had a few references to drinking, and the process of making the show came down to this: “Each piece is imagined and drafted in an impaired state, in the field, sometimes with little to no recollection of his sullied genius until the scrawled upon napkin is found the morning after.” And here are the results…
