‘Underground from iran’
Opening March 1st from 6-9pm
at Roll Up Gallery (Public Works)
161 Erie st SF
Despite challenging societal norms and the Iranian government, Icy and Sot have helped expand and articulate the Iranian underground art culture as both skaters and artists, bringing them an international buzz that’s already lead them to create their dualistic works in NYC, Paris, Turin and Sao Paolo. Now, together with their friends, Brooklyn via Tehran post punk band, The Yellow Dogs, they will travel across the USA making stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston and Chicago with a van, trailer and their inspiring determination to spread their art, and in so, awareness.
Icy and Sot, who thematically address oppression, consumerism, the appeal of fame, and a hope for peace with playful but poignant figures of innocence, will be revealing new stencil work as well as site-specific installations at their Roll Up Gallery show at Public Works, March 1st-3rd, as part of Culture Club during Noise Pop.
Their stop at Noise Pop and Roll Up Gallery @ Public Works will also include a live performance from The Yellow Dogs at Great American Music Hall on Thursday, February 28th (supporting !!!)
and an interactive live music and art session with both Icy and Sot and The Yellow Dogs at Culture Club at Swedish American House on Saturday, March 2nd

Graffiti conference seeks public's help
Neal J. Riley
Published 4:51 pm, Thursday, January 17, 2013
Graffiti is a more than $20 million-a-year problem in San Francisco, and though city officials put out a call Thursday to eradicate graffiti blight, there's still disagreement on how vandals should be punished.
At the first Zero Graffiti International Conference, hundreds of people from around the world gathered at St. Mary's Cathedral to discuss fighting graffiti and browse products to take spray paint and markers off any surface.
"Graffiti vandalism is a drain on our city's resources, impacting our neighborhoods and quality of life," said George Gascón, San Francisco's district attorney. "We ask the public to help out by reporting graffiti crime."
Split over penalties
Mohammed Nuru, the Department of Public Works director, said his agency takes an average of 3,000 calls a month about graffiti and has seen an increase in tagging on trees and artists' murals.
