Os Gemeos Tapped to Replace Haring’s Mural on Bowery and Houston


Just as we expected, the influential Brazilian street artists (and identical-twin brothers!) that go by the moniker Os Gemeos have been chosen to produce the replacement mural in the space where Keith Haring's work stood until yesterday. According to Deitch, "The mural will blend ideas from the artist’s daily life with the fantasy or 'ludico' world where the recognizable is harmonically blended with the abstract. The work will convey their vision of day-to-day life, simple scenes that are sensually rich." Still no word as to when this project is expected to be completed, though.
