Gol Transportes Aereos‘ (Sao Paulo) pictured Boeing 737-8EH PR-GUO (msn 35850) PR-GUO has been painted by the famous Brazilian Graffitti artist twins, Os Gêmeos. The design represents the Brazilian people who are getting ready to support the Brazilian football (soccer) team during the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
The aircraft paint is expected to last at least two years.
Os Gêmeos (Portuguese for The Twins) twins live in São Paulo, Brazil. Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo are graffiti artists and identical twins. According to Wikipedia, “the twins started painting graffiti artwork in 1987 and gradually became a main influence in the local scene, helping to define Brazil’s own style. Their work often features yellow-skinned characters – taken from the yellow tinge both of the twins have in their dreams – but is otherwise diverse and ranges from tags to complicated murals. Subjects range from family portraits to commentary on São Paulo’s social and political circumstances, as well as Brazilian folklore. Their graffiti style was influenced by both traditional hip hop style and the Brazilian culture”.
