The latest project by Os Gemeos took place within the framework of the Vancouver Biennale. These silos in an industrial area of the city (Granville Island) have become the canvas for their last production; giants dressed with their characters’ classic attire, using Montana Colors products.
Graffiti and mural interventions function as architectural and aesthetic solutions within major cities. Color works as a remedy that can improve people’s moods, and as it’s been proved, grants cities with a different overall feel, and contrasts the habitual grey of concrete.
The Biennale included this project in a crow-funding campaign in order to cover the costs that were generated. If you’d like to participate with your two cents, click here.
