Everything is getting tightened up at MOCA's Art In the Streets at the moment, and just one walk around the building this morning we found pieces by Os Gemeos, AMAZE, and BLADE, and LEE and FUTURA were putting touhces on the massive mural on the side of the Geffen. Inside is amazing, but more on that later. Pictures after the jump . . .

Another year gone, another year starting. We aren't Sports Illustrated or Rolling Stone where we rank our "Artist of the Year" or "Show of the Year," but we definitely have felt the energy and pulse of contemporary art in 2010, like you, our readers, and have a few ideas of who had major years in 2010. Was it JR and the TED Award? Dr Lakra showing at the Boston ICA? George Condo making an appearance in pop circles with the Kanye West covers and planned retrospective at New Museum?

We have been speaking recently about artists who have had impactful years, and Brazilian twins Os Gemeos (cover of Juxtapoz July 2010) have been around the globe creating more and more conceptual environments for their work to exist in. The newest end of the year announcement from Gemeos is the Moulin Project, something they have participated in before but were more involved this year. Information after the jump . . .

There was some Super8 footage found recently of Herbert Baglione (Juxtapoz July 2009 cover) painting all night in the basement of Lazarides Gallery in London the night before his solo show opened in November of 2008. That was a big show for Herbert, as he introduced some fully-developed color pieces that added to his already signature black and white characters. Watch the video after the jump . . .

The globetrotting twins, Os Gemeos, have been all over the place the past month, staying at RETNA's studio in LA to paint, Art Basel happening, and now they are in a group show at Lehmann Maupin in NYC called Law of the Jungle, that opens Thursday, December 9th. Brazilian artist, Tiago Carneiro da Cunha, curated the show. More information after the jump . . .

Getting back into the swing of things after the long, long weekend, and we have Art Basel right on our doorstep. We have previewed a few gallery line-ups so far, but New Image Art Gallery of Los Angeles has rolled out a very strong showing for Art Basel, with Os Gemeos, Cleon Peterson, Albert Reyes, Skullphone, and Judith Supine, plus a site specific installation with Jerry Hsu, Neck Face, Todd Jordan and others. Lots of images after the jump . . .

Cool to see that the late Dash "SACE" Snow has a tribute at the famous wall on the corner of Bowery and Houston that Deitch Projects used to rotate out with various international arists. We didn't know Dash personally, but we have friends that did, so we feel this is a nice ode to the man. Bigger picture after the jump . . .

So now it has a book. The show everyone will be talking about from now to the end of 2011, the MOCA's Art in the Streets, now has a book cover for the art world to start thinking about. San Francisco's vey own Barry "Twist" McGee is on the cover, rightly and properly so. What else do we know?

Combing on Os Gemeos' blog last night, we found some great documentary photos that famed Wim Wenders took of the twins painting inside a German rail tunnel. The series was shot for the “Out Sides” project and street art event held in Wüppertal 2006, and recently shown at the 20/Out, according to Os Gemeos' site. The photos are dramatic, with the same iconic work that Os Gemeos has been known for throughout the years. More images after the jump...

Again, Os Gemeos (Juxtapoz #114) express their frustration with Brazilian politics right now in a satirical street piece. Last week’s works featured images of protesting citizens; today’s showcases a politician.
