From cinema, music, architecture, calligraphy, weaving, poetry and other disciplines, the arts of Iran are one of the richest art heritages in world history; "street art" as it is commonly known, is no exception. Despite graffiti being a crime in Iran, street artists courageously spread their love, creativity and viewpoints through visually striking and politically charged imagery.
