Os Gemeos Paints 6 Industrial Silos with “Giants” for the Vancouver Biennale 2014

The Vancouver Biennale began its “two-year celebration of great contemporary art” back in spring with the theme “Open Borders / Crossroads Vancouver.” As a part of the exhibition, street art twins Os Gemeos continued their ongoing Giants series by painting six cement silos on Granville Island with massive 360-degree murals.


Each of the silos is 75 feet tall, with a combined area of 23,500 square feet, according to the Vancouver Biennale page. The $126,250 CAD project was funded in part by crowd-sourcing, with the IndieGoGo page raking in $28,999 CAD (so far) of its $20,000 CAD goal.
