BIOGRAPHY

Icy, 1985, Tabriz. Lives and works in Williamsburg, NY, USA

Sot, 1991, Tabriz. Lives and works in Williamsburg, NY, USA

Icy (born 1985) and Sot (born 1991) are self taught artists from Tabriz, Iran, currently residing in Williamsburg, New York. Since 2006, the two brothers have contributed to Iranian and international urban art culture through their striking stencil work depicting human rights, ecological justice, social and political issues. More recently they have moved in a more scuptural and interventional direction - often inspired by environmental issues.

Recently, a book with mainly outdoor pieces, covering the early years in Iran up till recent works, was published by Lebowski Publishers in 2016
