BEST STREET ART MURALS OF LAST YEAR - STREET UPDATE #150 by Widewalls
Inspired by a song from Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men street artists Wes21 and Onur created a large mural in Reykjavik titled Heavy Stones Fear No Weather. This is not the first collaboration by the two Swiss urban creatives. Their previous works include murals produced for different festivals in Berlin and Miami. We21 is known for his combination of science fiction elements with reality, while Onur has been recently preoccupied with representations of effects of urban living on human psyche. Heavy Stones Fear no Weather seems to follow both creatives’ interests. It is a depiction of fictional world where a stone fist rises as a sign of persistence and endurance.
