There is at least one work by the Brazilian twins Os Gemeos left in New York (not counting the splasherized ones in Williamsburg. Their collaboration at PS 11 with graffiti legend Futura still overlooks the playground a few blocks before the gallery madness of Chelsea takes over.
Set on the tree lined block, you almost feel alone with the piece, as opposed to the murals amidst the industrial gallery district just two blocks away. It also doesn’t hurt that the piece is 80 feet high! The familiar Os Gemeos yellow character is fused with Futura’s classic patterns, in an epic gift to the children of the school (and to us).
