The giants of Vancouver

Posted 18 September 2014

Today, a little spotlight on an extraordinary duo.

They are called Os Gemeos (the twins). So they are two brothers, Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo, tstraight from Brazil. They grew up together, hung out in the same streets together, we learned artistic expression together and today simply work together as graffiti artists and more widely known as "urban" artists.

Recently, they were behind a big project. You may have already seen one or two photos on the net.
They took over an industrial site in Vancouver, Canada, to turn it into a huge open-air exhibition. No less than six silos of nearly 23m were redecorated by their bombs on the island of Granville, in their very recognizable style.

This work is part of the more global project of the Vancouver Biennale which aims to be in the open air and totally public.

This massive art installation completely transformed the industrial area. And this to the delight of the surrounding population :)
