1983 is a unique artistic collaboration between OSGEMEOS x JR x PHARRELL WILLIAMS. The art of OSGEMEOS has always been inspired by hip hop.
Since their childhood, the Brazilian twins have been part of the São Paulo hip hop scene-their dreamypaintings often reference the codes of hip hop culture.

JR speaks about his seventeen-minute film ‘Les Bosquets, which premiered on April 26th at The Tribeca Film Festival. ‘Les Bosquets’ is the culmination of JR’s work over the past twelve years in ‘Les Bosquets’, a housing project in the Parisian suburb of Montfermeil, which became notorious as a site of the riots that erupted throughout France in 2005. In addition to documentary film footage, ‘Les Bosquets’ features a ballet choreographed by JR and performed by Lil’ Buck, and music by Hans Zimmer, Pharrell Williams, Woodkid and Ben Wallfisch.
For the film, JR arranged his team of collaborators beginning with Pharrell Williams. “I had this crazy footage of buildings [in Les Bosquet] falling down and I wanted Pharrell to do the music,” JR explains. Williams agreed, and according to JR, he was fascinated to know more about what happened. “That’s how [Williams] put that seed in my head, [that] I should continue the film,” JR says. He enlisted Woodkid, who had composed the score for the NYCB, and then he approached Oscar winning composer Hans Zimmer, who agreed to work on the film under the condition that it exists as an art project. When JR started photographing the community over a decade ago, he had no idea how the project would evolve over the next decade. “That’s the beauty of working as an artist,” JR says. “You decide when it’s finished.”
