…”Brazilian artists bring burst of colour to Ocean Cement silos”…

Those familiar with Vancouver’s beloved Granville Island will know the dull grey Ocean Cement concrete silos that have graced the skyline for many many years.

As part of Vancouver’s Biennale art project, the artists said their first challenge was to find a location that would fit with their idea.

“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 is to bring new characters to Vancouver while sharing perspectives and cultures and establishing a relationship between the people who frequent this site. 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.”
