Most Striking Murals That Paint A Very Different Picture Of Life Inside Iran

It takes a great artist to change the largely skewed looking glass through which many people view Iranian culture.

Social and economic oppression tend to be what first come to mind when defining everyday life, Mehdi Ghadyanloo‘s street art takes a decidedly different approach when presenting the Iran narrative.

Tehran’s architecture has hints of Persian design, interspersed between urban apartments. You can also come across rows of murals depicting political and religious figures, however, public spaces don’t often reflect the aspirations of young liberal intellectuals.

Ghadyanloo has a more nuanced touch to dense messages, preferring a playful abstraction when creating his work, this takes the form of towering and vibrant scenes which sprawl over a wonderful mix of facades around the city.
