If you’ve been on False Creek lately, they’re hard to miss.
Those giant concrete silos on Granville Island – the ones that tower 70 feet above the water at the Ocean Concrete plant – have gotten a dramatic facelift. They’ve been painted a rainbow of reds, yellows, pinks, blues and greens as part of one of the largest public art projects the city has ever seen.
World-renowned street artists Osgemeos are using the silos as a 23,500-square-foot canvas for their latest work. It’s all part of this year’s Vancouver Biennale, the outdoor sculpture and art exhibition that sees dozens of monumental works of art installed on the street, parks and buildings of Metro Vancouver.
