Artwork by Icy and Sot, ‘imagine a world without borders’

It’s #worldpoetryday, and while I’m not big on what feels like an arbitrary custom to highlight something for a day – like #worldenvironmentday should be every day, and pretty much any other cause that’s significant – here’s some poetry that goes beyond words: Icy and Sot’s installation, ‘imagine a world without borders’.

Originally from Tabriz, Iran, the sibling artists started out stencilling on the streets of their home city and now live in New York, making work in a variety of mediums internationally. Engaging with issues such as gun violence, the refugee crisis, human rights, and climate justice, the duo’s public art has an underlying purpose to advocate freedom and hope for people worldwide, and raise awareness in issues relevant to our times.
