Os Gemeos have done it again and this time more successful than ever. As part of the Vancouver Biennale they were commissioned to let their imaginations loose on an old concrete factory. Visible from a newly developed part of the city, the silos turned instantly into six of the distinct characters Os Gemeos have turned into a staple in the past years. The murals are located on the six gigantic industrial Ocean Concrete silos on Vancouver’s Granville Island – a location that attracts 10.5 million viewers from around the world every year, making it one of the biggest public art sites ever.
This is the biggest (largest in area and height) mural by the Brazilian twins and have taken a month of hard work to complete. All the time spent on the project was donated by the artists who spent the last days adding intricate detail to their “giants” like stitches and buttons.
