Brazilian graffiti duo Os Gemeos (that’s “the twins” in Portuguese) have teamed up with fellow artist Futura2000 to create a mural of monolothic proportions, appropriately titled the Giant Project. Painted on the side of PS 11 Elementary School (W 21st between 8th and 9th), the giant stands what appears to be at least five stories tall. The yellow-skinned, Matt Groening-esque figure sports a pair of patchwork pants made up of various world flags. According to Os Gemeos, the idea was to signify “unity, a world without borders, combined to form ‘one world one voice.’” Click through to see a series of photographs of the giant in various stages of completion.
