OsGemeos Transform Silos in Vancouver into Towering Giants

Renowned Brazilian street artist twins, OsGemeos have lent their signature ‘Giants’ to a series of six huge silos for the Vancouver Biennale. Located on Granville Island, the 70-foot tall towers perfectly match the duo’s work, even including small legs at the bottom.

Although they are familiar with large scale work (painting plenty of tall walls and even a Boeing 737 for the World Cup) this is easily the pair’s largest piece to date, and covers a staggering 23,500 square feet. It’s also their first piece in Canada. Working without pay, they spent one month on the project, but were able to recoup more than twice their fundraising goal on a very successful Indigogo campaign. Well done.

See more images of the project here or in person at the Vancouver Biennale through 2016.
