Six Industrial Silos Turned Into Cartoonish Giants By Os Gemeos

giants-industrial-silos-graffiti-os-gemeos-1

Six massive industrial silos on the Granville Island in Vancouver, Canada, have been wonderfully transformed into six vividly colored giants by Brazilian graffiti artist duo Os Gemeos. Octavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, the twin brothers behind Os Gemeos, dedicated roughly a month of their time to create this astonishing piece as part of the Vancouver Biennale.

 The mural is also a part of Os Gemeos’s on-going art project titled “Giants,” with their trademark yellow giant characters leaving their imprint in cities around the world. However, with each silo measuring 75 feet (23 meters) high and the mural covering a total of 23,500 square feet (7,200 sq meters), this piece is by far the biggest in their collection, and is their first foray into the three-dimensional mural format.
You can contribute to the Indiegogo fundraising campaign to compensate the expenses associated with the mural.
