Os Gemeos Paint 6 Silos in Vancouver: Duo’s Largest Mural to Date, First in Canada

os-gemeos-vancouver07

The Brazilian twin duo known as Os Gemeos are leaving a beautiful mark on Vancouver, painting six industrial Ocean Concrete silos next to the art school I graduated from. The finished mural will measure a total of 7200 square meters (23,500 square feet) making it the pairs’ largest mural to date (and their first in Canada).

The project is part of the Vancouver Biennale which has just launched an IndieGoGo to raise money to pay for the public art. The artists have donated their time, and all money raised will go towards paying for the materials and trip expenses for the artists.

I’m happy to see our city of glass finally getting some much needed colour! If you live in Vancouver, and you want to see more things like this, consider giving a few dollars to the IndieGoGo: HERE.

The Yerka Project: “The Unstealable Bike”

yerkaproject_unstealablebike

Three engineering students in Chile, Juan José Monsalve, Andrés Roi, and Cristóbal Cabello, have designed a bicycle frame that effectively locks itself around a pole. This eliminates the need to have a lock and provides more of a deterrent as a thief would have to break the frame to steal the bicycle. This doesn’t however solve the problem of thieves stealing things like the wheels but the working prototype is a pretty innovative idea.

Burning Man 2014 is beginning right now in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. I’d heard that the festival had grown exponentially in recent years, but I had no clue it was this insane.

Vimeo user Roy Two Thousand has compiled a bunch of incredible time-lapse footage from last year’s festival that you have to see to believe.

Watch “Lake Of Dreams” below!
