    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    ICY and SOT's stencils first began to garner attention in the 2000s in the streets of Tabriz, a city in northern Iran. Since then the two brothers have been perfecting their mastery over this technique, while expanding their artistic practice to a wide range of other mediums: sculpture, installations, photography, performances… "We decided that whatever idea we had," say the artists, "we would make it happen in whatever medium or material that makes the work stronger."

    In 2012, ICY & SOT emigrated to the United States, where they found a safe haven that would allow them to grow and bring their artistic practice to maturity. They are now well-known figures on the international urban art scene. More than ever, they continue to be part of a long and rich tradition of political art. Among the issues that they typically address: war, gender inequalities, state brutality, damage induced by the market economy, the plight of refugees and the environmental crisis.

    It is then a picture of our contemporary world that paints the Iranian duo, with all its flaws, breakdowns and tragedies. However ICY & SOT are never guilty of resignation or fatalism. Their work is beaming with hope and resilience. The destiny of these two artists is already in itself one reason not to despair of the world, for ICY & SOT demonstrate that talent and perseverance sometimes have the power to overcome the trials of life.

    ICY (born in 1985) and SOT (born in 1991) grew up in Iran and now live in New York City. Artists of international renown, they have exhibited their work among other places at the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art in Munich, at the Saatchi Gallery in London, or at the Museum of Fine Arts in Calais, France.

Icy & Sot


Icy and Sot, are two brothers, two artists, who were born in the Northwest of Iran, in Tabriz. The eldest, Icy was born in 1985 and Sot in 1991. Together, they have fill the streets and the walls with their stencils. In 2008, they decided to leave Iran to have more freedom and creativity and moved to Brooklyn, New York where they currently live and work.

Coming from a generation of children of war, the two artists promote very meaningful messages. In 2006, it was with paint bombs that they decided to fight all the atrocities that surrounded them. They claim messages of peace, justice and hope by raising high and strong the human rights banner. Art is the best weapon against ignorance and conflict, and these two artist have understood it very well.

Icy and Sot became two influential and important artists in Iran, who have changed the landscapes of urban art. It is thanks to skateboard, which they are passionate about, that they discovered grafitti and stencil, the two worlds being inseparable. Thus they criss-cross the city and undertook a really creative crusade. Brick by brick and wall by wall they started dismantling preconceived images of Iranian tradition.

Either through giant sculptures or with wall stencils they try to create conscience, to encourage viewers to question their actions. It is social, political, and ecological issues that they treat with cans of Coke in form of skulls to represent our consumer society, or arms covered with dollar bills that are blocking our view.

Street-art is illegal in Iran, like everywhere else, and it is even easier to get caught by the authorities. This is why the two young brothers decided to go to New York in 2008. They started a tour of Europe in order to find other social issues specific to each country.

Together, Icy and Sot's work has been exhibited all around the world, on the streets and on galleries in France, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and Italy.
