The Moco museum in Amsterdam is a boutique museum with a wide range of modern, inspiring and contemporary art that we show to the public. The competition comes nowhere near it. Think of the artists: Banksy, Icy & Sot and Roy Lichtenstein. These artists use a lot of irony towards modern society, that is what makes them so special. Moco provides inspiration and eye openers for all the visitors. With this, Moco speaks to a wide audience. Visitors who come to the Moco museum will experience art that is nowhere to be seen but here.
Icy & Sot
The fact that the young Iranian brothers Icy (34) and Sot (29) are called the ‘Banksy of Iran’ is not without reason. In their own country, their work is not only considered controversial, it is even banned. Notwithstanding, the work of these street artists literally holds a mirror to the current Iranian society. With their work they offer an idiosyncratic view on themes like oppression, fame, freedom, war and dreams. The talent of the brothers did not go unnoticed and soon Icy and Sot got the chance to leave the streets of Tabriz tempted by New York.
An impressive exhibition, with lots of touching art.
