Granville Island Cement Plant Receives A New Colorful Look

ART SMASH

Granville Island is a hot spot for tourists who visit Vancouver, drawing in an estimated 10 million visitors per year.

Those who visit Granville Island in the future will now look twice when they pass the island’s cement plant thanks to a new mural.

Ocean Concrete, a company who has been on Granville Island since 1917 has transformed it’s six dull concrete silos into one big peice of public art with the help of two Brazilian street artists known as Os Gemeos.

The duo are twin brothers from Sao Paolo, Brazil, and this mural is their first project in Canada.
