Description:

This unassuming piece of public art depicts two street artists, brightly colored, standing on one another's shoulders, with the uppermost figure tagging the wall with the word "Gêmeos." Gêmeos means 'twins' in portugese, and refers to Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, the identical twins whose collaborative endeavors make up the group Os Gêmeos. The mural playfully adorns a previously blank cement wall on Stuart Street side of the Revere Hotel.
