For those of you who love street art, here are three opportunities not to miss (via Arrested Motion).
On the 1st of August, the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art will continue its innovative and pioneering programing with the opening of Brazilian street muralists Os Gemeos first ever solo museum exhibition in the United States. The identical twins, Otávio and Gustavo Pandolfo, are Brazilian born street-artists, famous for their often surreal murals populated by whimsical characters.
See more of their work here.

Second, but not in stature, is a solo show of Bay-area legend Barry McGee through BAM/PFA. Fusing together found and invented imagery, Barry McGee draws on a range of influences including the Mexican muralists, tramp art, the graffiti artists of the 70’s and 80’s and the San Francisco Beat poets to create a unique visual language. The show will begin at the end of August (August 24th) through BAM/PFA

And Third on the solo-show circuit, is another Bay-area personal favorite, Brian Barneclo. We recently featured his new-ish mural in the Mission Bay district of SF. His style for his murals and paintings are very reminiscent of cubism and yet are bold and modern and relevant to today’s culture.
His work, “Tight, but Loose” is on showcase through August 20th at 3318 22nd Street in San Francisco, CA. The show does feature his street art, but rather a new and amazing collection of paintings.
