Brazilian street art legends, Os Gemeos, recently finished their biggest mural to date – Giants in Vancouver. Painting over 6 large 70-foot/21 meters tall silos, the twins created this magnificent 360 degree mural for Vancouver Biennale. This large piece of public art shows a small group of their signature yellow face characters, kneeling on the waterfront at Granville Island. (photos by @craige13)
The whole process lasted a bit over 3 weeks, and after adding numerous details in the last few days, the mural will officially be revealed on Sunday, 7th of September, from 12:00 to 5:00 PM on Ocean Concrete, Granville Island. The artists and Venice Binnale are inviting the crowd to come and see these giants from up close and celebrate the power of art. This historic event will be captured on a big aerial photo, which is the only way to capture this gigantic piece of art.
Organized by the non profit organization, Vancouver Biennale, the success of this project strongly depended on the generosity of the artists and the funds raised through the fund rising campaign. Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo dedicated a month of their time to paint their giants, and their supporters have another 2 weeks to help organizers cover the rest of costs by donating through Indiegogo campaign.
