ICY & SOT at Moco Museum

A Moment of Clarity

ICY & SOT are two Iranian artists who make controversial art, some even call them the Banksy fom Iran. The exposition is part of a collaboration with tv and internet personality Anna Nooshin, who is from Iran herself. That wasn’t the only reason Nooshin wanted to include the brothers in her collaboration with the museum. She identified herself with them because of their rough start in life and how that didn’t keep them from striving for the best. Anna and Kim travelled to New York together to meet the brothers and select the art that will be part in the exposition that is on display from June 1st until the end of October.

About the Artists; ICY & SOT

The creative duo applied for asylum in 2012 in the United States, with this granted they’ve gotten the opportunity to leave the streets of Tabriz, and come to the city that inspired so many; New York. They now live in Brooklyn, but there work is part of exhibitions all over the world. Since 2006 they’ve been an important contribution to the Iranian and international street art culture. Sociological and political themes are interwoven in their art, from the travel ban for Iranians to environmental issues.
