ICY (b. 1985) and SOT (b. 1991) are artists from Tabriz, Iran, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. The two brothers started painting with stencils in 2006, and have since been contributing to Iranian and international urban art culture through their murals, art interventions, videos, and installations by means of which they convey their views and concerns on human rights, capitalism, ecological justice, and social and political issues. Their work has appeared regularly on walls and galleries throughout Iran, USA, Germany, China, Norway, and globally. They transcend their histories of artistic and political censorship by using public art to envision a world free from borders, war, and violence.
