Shortly after finishing his recent mural in Moscow, Russian artist Rustam Qbic was invited to Saint Petersburg for Casus Pacis festival happening there. With this year being on 100th anniversary of  World War I, the focus of the festival is on peaceful efforts and anti-war agenda behind independent street and media artists.
Rustam painted another surrealistic mural showing two hooded faceless characters with a river between them. With one character carrying a locked backpack, and other having set of keys and a bird with a key for head, the image suggests the problems of separation and alienation.
Check out more photos after the jump and stay tuned for more street art related news from Russia coming soon.
