EUGENE, Ore. -- The 20x21 EUG Mural Project is about bringing people together.

One of the most recent artists involved in the project, which seeks to add 20 murals across Eugene before the 2021 IAAF World Championships, is Kiran Maharjan from Nepal.

He is the first artist brought in through a partnership with a Eugene sister city.

Maharjan said he does a lot of work around the idea of evolution -- physically and intellectually -- and his mural was inspired by that message. He said he wanted it to lead people to think about how we’re all connected.

“Even though we belong to different communities, different cultures, different backgrounds, and from different places, we, in the end, are humans,” Maharjan said. “That is something that binds us all together, so this is a mural that kind of talks about that.”

Maharjan said it’s especially important to him to represent the connection between humans because of the 2021 IAAF World Championships happening in Eugene.

Mural number 17 can be found on the back of Theo’s Coffee House/Whirled Pies on 8th Avenue next to Goodyear.
