OS GEMEOS CREATE GIANTS IN VANCOUVER
That dynamic duo, street artists Os Gemeos (Portuguese for the twins)turned six large silos in the industrial area of Granville Island,Canada into their distinctive characters. Each 75-foot-tall cylinder features a different character, dressed in vibrant colors and bold patterns.
It was unveiled on September 7th as part of Os Gemeos’ international series, Giants, their largest undertaking to date. The art project was organized by the Vancouver Biennale as part of their city-wide effort to convert urban landscapes into open air exhibitions across the city.

"After wrapping Guardians of the Galaxy I was very homesick and I was coming home to my wife and my son, who at the time was 13 months old. My wife told me ‘Hey, listen there’s a chance he may not recognize you and he may be a little shy’ and so I came in there, and he just sat right up and had this big smile on his face. He started saying ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy!’ and I just started to cry. He saw the tears in my eyes and started doing bits to make me laugh and that just made me cry more."
