Os Gemeos.

Os Gemeos is a Graffiti (brothers) duo from Brazil. I had heard that they covered the wall on West Houston street before Shepard Fairey claimed the space, but didn't realize that the property owners had preserved their mural until now. Still not sure how I feel about this so-called "street art war" (thus destruction of the Shepard piece) but I am happy to see bits a pieces of this particular work.

Then, by fate, while visiting Coney Island for the first time (I know I know! FIRST TIME), we walked out of the subway to see yet another Os Gemeos mural. I absolutely adore their dreamlike sequences and painterly touch...
