OS GEMEOS CREATE GIANTS IN VANCOUVER

That dynamic duo, street artists Os Gemeos (Portuguese for the twins)turned six large silos in the industrial area of Granville Island,Canada into their distinctive characters.  Each 75-foot-tall cylinder features a different character, dressed in vibrant colors and bold patterns. 

It was unveiled on September 7th as part of Os Gemeos’ international series, Giants, their largest undertaking to date. The art project was organized by the Vancouver Biennale as part of their city-wide effort to convert urban landscapes into open air exhibitions across the city.
