Biography / ICY & SOT

The artists Icy and Sot, both born in Tabriz, Iran and now reside in Brooklyn, New York. They use a multitude of various artistic techniques to further elaborate upon their art, from stencil art to interventions, video installations and more. Their art is featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

In 2006, the two artist brothers started as stencil artists and have come a long way since their beginnings in their native country of Iran. Today, they are regarded as important urban artists, contributing to the global urban art culture through their various artistic expressions. Their work can be seen in galleries as well as outdoors, and it’s always conveying important messages of human rights issues, criticism of capitalism and other socio-political issues. The brothers’ playful and entertaining approach to the topics they depict is the twist that makes their art even more powerful.
