Assum Preto is devoted to the Brazilian twins Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, known as Os Gemeos. It illustrates the canvases and installations created for their first solo show in Italy at the Galleria Patricia Armocida in Milan. A love for drawing, attention to detail and extraordinary mastery of colour are just some of the elements that distinguish the work of these artists, who have been profoundly influenced by popular Brazilian culture, the urban setting and their highly personal imagination. The Assum Preto art book is composed of colour pages with different grammages, a stiff cover in black canvas with four-colour embroidery and, inside, a previously unpublished serigraph created by Os Gemeos for the occasion. It represents a precious object containing the works of this duo, which has been active in São Paulo since the late 1980s.
The book trailer was made by Studiocharlie, presenting the work in a video format and highlighting its most precious physical qualities.
