ILL is an Iranian street artist born in Tabriz Iran in 1985 and currently living in Istanbul. He started to paint walls in 2012. I have pieces in different cities of Iran such as Tabriz, Tehran, Northern cities and some other places.

“The authorities in Iran don’t know what graffiti is,” says “Ill”, one of Iran’s tiny cadre of street artists. “But they do know from the revolution what stencils on the wall can mean,” he adds, referring to the ubiquitous murals of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and heroic drawings of other leading Islamist figures that helped to bring down Iran’s last shah in 1979.
