Vancouver Silos Turn Into Os Gemeos “Giants”

August 21, 2014 | Sophie Weiner

For the upcoming Vancouver Biennial, international street artists Os Gemeos are taking over a 75 foot tall wall of silos as part of their ongoing “Giants” series.

“We did not want a conventional two-dimensional wall that we had done before – we wanted something different, special and unique,” Os Gemeos wrote in a statement about the project. “The connection between water and land on Granville Island, on the False Creek margins, also had a lot to do with the choice of location – for us, the water acts as a vein, symbolizing life, and it is very present in our work.”
