Soon, in the city of Vancouver, street artists Os Gemeos will unveil a new mural that livens up a typically grey industrial area in Granville Island. The identical twin brothers from Brazil painted six large silos in their distinctive cartoonish style with vibrant colors and patterns that adorn the structures. Each 75-foot-tall cylinder features a different character, who comes complete with their own personality, wardrobe, and bright yellow skin.

All together, this impressive 360 degree public artwork measures 23,500 square feet! This mural is part of Os Gemeos’ (known separately as Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo) international series, Giants, and is their largest undertaking to date. It’s also the first time that their work will appear in Canada. The Vancouver Biennale helped to organise this project as part of their city-wide effort to convert urban landscapes into open air exhibitions across the city.
