Hyvää tiistaita (tuesday_dimarts) kaikille!
Brazilian graffiti artists Os Gemeos (Octavio and Gustavo Pandolfo) were invited to the Vancouver Biennale to turn six multi-story silos on Granville Island into their trademark ‘Giants.’ _Els artistes grafiters brasilenys Os Gemeos van ser convidats a la Biennal de Vancouver per convertir sis sitges de diversos pisos (21 metres) a Granville Island en la seva marca registrada Giants.
Os Gemeos completely donated a month of their time to create the non-profit art project. _Os Gemeos han donat completament un mes del seu temps per crear aquest projecte d'art sense ànim de lucre.
The first challenge of this project was to find a location that would fit with our idea. We did not want a conventional two-dimensional wall that we had done before – we wanted something different, special and unique. We have an ongoing project called “Giants” that has been realized in several places in the world such as Greece, USA, Poland, Portugal, the Netherlands, Brazil and England, and we will continue now in Canada, but with a difference. As the proposed Biennale has a strong connection with sculpture, we decided to find a place where the painting can be transformed, creating a dialogue between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional worlds. Another aim of this project is to bring new characters to Vancouver while sharing perspectives and cultures and establishing a relationship between the people who frequent this site and integrate this work into the city scenery. The connection between water and land on Granville Island, on the False Creek margins, also had a lot to do with the choice of location – for us, the water acts as a vein, symbolizing life, and it is very present in our work.- Os Gemeos.
