Two Graffiti Artists Turn Industrial Silos into Giants in Vancouver [PHOTOS]
Brazilian street and graffiti artists Os Gemeos were called upon to turn six giant silos in Vancouver into their signature graffiti art. The two artists spent a month painting the 70-foot tall silos for Vancouver’s Biennale, a non-profit and charitable organization that celebrates art in public spaces. With the silos graffiti, Os Gemeos brings the two dimensional and the three-dimensional together in what is now the tallest public painting ever attempted by the duo.
Os Gemeos is made up of twin brothers Octavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, who always worked together, according to their website biography:
When children in the streets of the traditional district of Cambuci (SP), developed a distinctive way of playing and communicating through art. With the support of family, and the arrival of Hip Hop culture in Brazil in the 80s, OSGEMEOS found a direct connection with their magical and dynamic universe and a way to communicate with the public.
