Os Gemeos colorizes six giant silos on Vancouver’s Granville Island
Thursday August 21st, 2014
Os Gemeos takes their ongoing ‘giants’ project to Canada, transforming six industrial silos with their bold mural painting for the Vancouver Biennale. Sited on Granville Island, the Brazilian brotherly duo are renewing the industrial landmark, which is home of the ocean cement manufacturing and distribution plant, into an enormous public art work that spans 360-degrees of the 23-meter (75 foot) tall cylindrical forms. In its completion the mural will measure a total of 7200 square meters (23, 5000 square feet) – their largest opus to date – bringing renewed life to the locale, positioned alongside the world-famous public market, Emily Carr University and boat docks that attracts 10.5 million visitors per year.
