OsGemeos Complete First 360 Mural on Six Giant Concrete Silos
OSGEMEOS (b. 1974, São Paulo, Brazil), translated as “The Twins”, Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo, have worked together since birth. The street artist duo recently completed their first ever, 360 degree mural on Granville Island for this year’s Vancouver Biennale.
The ambitious project is a continuation of their ongoing Giants series and is not only their largest public mural to date, but it’s the duo’s first in Canada. Six 23-meter-tall (75 ft) concrete silos serve as the canvas, covering a surface area of 7,200 square meters (23,500 sq. ft). The silos are part of the Ocean Cement manufacturing and distribution plant on Vancouver’s Granville Island; alongside the world-famous Public Market, Emily Carr University, and boat docks that attract 10.5 million visitors per year.
The art project is being funded through Indiegogo and they are accepting contributions until 21 September 2014.
