Street art and graffiti are still considered to be a crimes in many countries, but in Iran the situation is even more serious because street art and graffiti are not recognised as art, they are classed as satanism and slogan against the nation. For these reason Iranian street artists live and work under anonymously. That is exactly why some of them moved to other countries, like ICY & SOT or CK1 emigrated to U. S. A., but others are still living in Iran, where they try to spread their art. One of this is MAD, about his life we only know that he grew up in Tabriz, he thrived during the street tumult that followed the disputed presidential election of 2009. MAD’s works are influenced by Iranian government’s censorship also in other aspects, he uses stencil for its speed execution and his art focus on social problems, wars and, obviously, censorship.
