Industrial Art

This 3-D mural painted on concrete silos at Ocean Concrete on Granville Island is part of a non-profit public art project dedicated to exhibiting art “where people live, work, play, and transit.” They were painted by twin brothers from Brazil and decidedly liven up an otherwise mundane canvas. There are so many tourists snapping photos of the “Giants” that a security guard has to keep the entrance clear for their trucks to be able to enter and exit the grounds. I’d say the art project was a success–quite the attention-grabber!
