Street Art Honors the Old in Iran


One of the coolest things about street art is that it can be found anywhere in the world. Iranian street artists Icy and Sot put up this powerful stencil in Tabriz, they titled “The Old.” The first question that comes to my mind is, does the government allow them to do this? If not, and they got caught, what kind of harsh punishment would they face? Whatever the answers, Icy and Sot deserve major recognition for this incredibly amazing piece of art.
