Even as global tensions surrounding Iran’s nuclear program continue to burn, two Irianian brothers that go by the psuedonyms ICY and SOT adorn the walls of Tehran with their controversial messages. Risking their lives in the process, they wield their spray cans and multiple stencils to give the voice to the most vulnerable of their society – children, women, and the elderly.
Their art, influenced by street artists such as Banksy, has been recognised internationally in the recent months and a collection of their works was featured in ARTINFO France last month.
Select pieces of their art appears on the walls inside the building but at heart ICY and SOT are street artists
They hope that through their art they will give voice to the most vulnerable members of Iran's society
