Under The Bridge Gallery based in Brooklyn New York will be releasing a collaborative print by Iranian stencil artists Icy & Sot and Argentinian artist Sonni tomorrow Friday 19th of September at 12pm Eastern time at http://under-the-bridge.myshopify.com/.
The print is based of an existing street art piece in Bushwick Brooklyn which was recently painted over. The mural received such positive feedback that Under The Bridge Gallery approached both Icy & Sot + Sonni to recreate the image for a run of signed and numbered edition of 100.
ICY & SOT are stencils artists from Tabriz Iran, currently based in Brooklyn, NY. they continue on their creative crusade to dismantle pre-conceived perceptions of a fleeting Iranian tradition through their striking stencil artwork. Since 2006, they have made paramount accomplishments in Iranian urban art culture as both skaters and artists, creating an international buzz by playing it any way but safe, their works are about war, peace, hope, despair, society issues and human rights .The two brothers have held numerous exhibitions around the world and their out door works have been seen on the streets of Iran, turkey, Paris,Sao paulo San Francisco and New York to name a few.
Sonni was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied graphic design and worked as an Art Director for animation and film companies, he resides in Brooklyn, New York. In his art, he is constantly searching for that lost moment in adolescence where adventure makes dreams a reality, where the imagination and playing develop invisible forces to re-capture those lost momeries from your childhood. He works with different mediums that include paper and pencil, illustrator, acrylic on canvas, and wooden sculptures. Yet, his passion is to paint murals in public spaces, finding that dialogue with the public through primary colors and playfulness!
I am personally very excited about this print release because you get a great bang for your buck because of it’s collaberative nature…and helps with saving wall space ; ).
