In a vacant lot on 14th Street in Manhattan are two large murals by the street art team, OSGEMEOS (or Os Gemeos), a Portuguese word meaning twins. An apt word in this case because the two Brazilian artists, Gustavo Pandolfo and Otavio Pandolfo, are twin brothers. The murals were painted in 2017 after a building was demolished – the lot is still vacant and the murals are still looking good (even if they are behind a fence).
They face each other across the wasteland. Music fans might be able to find the references to various musicians that have been included in the paintings.
As I was driving north on the I-5 in Los Angeles, I spotted some street art on a side street. I made a detour to take a closer look. There was more graffiti, street art, and interesting things in general in this area of East LA (around Whittier Blvd and East Olympic Blvd) that maybe one day I will get back to.
The following photos were all taken at the same location, a building on Telegraph Road between LaVerne and Ferris in East LA.
