Os Gêmeos, “Silence of the Music” at Lehmann Maupin
The twin Brazilian street artists, Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo, have forged their own wildly lovable—if not exactly edgy—style that characterized by brightly colored cartoon icons. The twins were inspired by their encounter with Mission School street art great Barry “Twist” McGee, and, following in his footsteps, have moved from outdoor murals to immersive indoor installations as they head into the fine art world. They continue to turn up the volume on their creations—in this case literally, with a variety of “boom box paintings” (canvasses with embedded speakers) and sculptures that play LP records, all of it somehow themed around the golden age of hip hop.

“Silence of the Music” is on view at Lehmann Maupin, 536 West 22nd Street, from September 8–October 22, 2016.
