5 days of work for an amazing yellow giant mixing the style of Futura and the brazilian twins. The overall theme is a message of international unity. Os Gemeos iconic yellow character is adorned with flags representing countries around the globe.

Os Gemeos said regarding the flags : “We are using different flags painted with non-traditional colours. The idea is one world one voice, no borders, no separation, just everything and everyone working together for a single cause that is a better world.”


“We want to open a dialogue with the city of New York and work with local and international artists to create a regular mural series that we believe will inspire and enrich the creative communities throughout the city,” says AKANYC creative director Allen Benedikt

Check out the mural, and if you do reside in the city, you can drop by the spot and see how incredible is the piece.

  1. Os Gemeos is one of my favorite team of artists.
    I remember in 1997 I bought my first Twelve Oz. Prophet magazine that featured their stories about being street artist in Brazil. Since then I have been inspired and moved by their work.
