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.
"…This week my dear friend Karen is putting out her first solo album of precious, personal love and heartache gems titled Crush Songs. They are songs made so intimately and spontaneously alone in her bedroom a few years ago that they feel more like unguarded whispers from her heart than a traditionally produced album. So on Sunday, during a ten-minute break as we were rehearsing and lighting at the Met, we made a very impromptu ‘music video’ for Karen in the spirit of her album. She is going to see this for the first time as you do. I hope you enjoy.”
