5 years ago, in a project organized by our very own Allen Benedikt (founder of AKANYC & 12ozProphet.com), Os Gemeos and Futura2000 teamed together to create another “gigante”, as the twin artists call their very familiar yellow characters in massive form, which they’ve also contributed to the communities of Greece, Holland, Lisbon, London and Sao Paulo. 

The concept behind the eighty-foot tall Gigante, on the west-facing wall of PS-11, was to completely alter the colors of nation’s flags, which the artists say signify unity; a world without borders combined to form “one world, one voice”, where everyone works for a single cause for a better world.

The mural still stands tall to this day.
