This ‘Stop Wars’ Street Art Will Make You Love Yoda Even More

Excited about this street art, we are.

Yoda, famed for training up Jedi for combat in the Star Wars epic, has been turned into a multi-colored peace activist for this new mural in Miami.

The Grand Jedi Master is pictured carrying a placard that simply reads, “Stop Wars” in the font of the franchise.

Eduardo Kobra, from Brazil, is behind the new piece in the Wynwood art district, according to Mashable. 

Well known for his bold and brightly colored kaleidoscopic themed work, he posted the image on his Instagram and Facebook pages Thursday.

It’s the latest in a long line of gigantic murals from the artist.

Martin Luther King Jr., the Dalai Lama, Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna, Albert Einstein and Tupac Shakur are just some of the portraits he’s painted.

In 2013 he paid tribute, with four other artists, to the recently deceased architect Oscar Niemeyer, from Brazil, by covering the entire side of a Sao Paulo skyscraper with an image of his face.

He’s also recreated the VJ Day kiss in Times Square, New York, in street art form on 25th Street at 10th Avenue in Chelsea.

Kobra’s social media profiles and website are filled with stunning examples of his work, including this time-lapse video of him painting Abraham Lincoln on Water Street in Lexington, Kentucky, in 2012:

The Force is indeed strong with this one.
