Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPdearphotograph
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
This weekend’s tag was #WHPdearphotograph, which asked participants to take an old film photograph or antique postcard from the past, hold it up against the original setting and then take a picture of it. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.
Exploring the Dream Worlds of Os Gêmeos
Brazilian artists Octavio & Gustavo Pandolfo, identical twin brothers who create painted works together, are known under the moniker Os Gêmeos (@osgemeos), Portuguese for “The Twins.” Their distinct style features yellow-skinned, skinny caricatures that come from dreams they say they have both experienced. The twins’ stunning dream-world-to-real-world collaborative style was influenced by artistic family members in addition to traditional hip-hop culture and the Brazilian pixação movement in the late eighties.
Os Gêmeos have hosted exhibitions at the Los Angeles MoCA, The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Dépayz’arts in France and Museu Colecção Berardo in Lisbon, just to name a few. In addition, their street art can be found in Berlin, New York, Portugal, Florida, London and across Brazil.
