GIANTS is the largest and first 360-degree mural created by the internationally renowned Brazilian street artists OSGEMEOS. The brightly coloured seventy-foot-tall mural has transformed the six industrial silos at the Ocean Concrete plant on Granville Island and has quickly become one of the iconic landmarks in a city skyline filled with glass and concrete architecture. The mural has become a focal point for the over ten million annual visitors to Granville Island and is now an undeniable icon of the city.
