Iranian artists Icy & Sot have created a new mural at The Bushwick Collective in Brooklyn New York to memorialize the loss of three of their friends who were shot and killed last year during a tragic murder suicide.
Anyone in NYC who was part of the urban art or indie rock club scene remember the tragic events of last year. I personally remember seeing hundreds of people lighting candles at the vigil on N 6th St. in Williamsburg Brooklyn outside the club that Soroush, Arash, and Ali's band The Yellow Dogs frequently performed at.
Icy & Sot describe their feelings about the mural very quaintly:
"In memory of our beloved friends, miss you guys so much, your beautiful memories are always with us"If you have a chance to head over to The Bushwick Collective do yourself a favor and check out the memorial mural. Icy & Sot always create amazing pieces, but this one has a special passion attached to it that can only be experienced in person.

DalEast recently stopped in San Diego for Pangeaseed's Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans project. Invited to create one of his signature murals for their worthy cause, Chinese artist created this piece in East Village district of San Diego, California.
With organization's main goal in mind, rising awareness about conservation and preservation of sharks and other marine species, he painted this double piece showing a human on one, and shark on another wall of the same building. Using minimalist color palette that accents the water element on a shark, both images are slowly decomposing towards each other, symbolizing mutual dependence. Once again his technique proves it's strength with this fragile work.
Check out more photos after the jump and make sure you check back for more news from Pangeaseed.
Croatian artist Lonac and Serbian artist Artez recently joined forces to create the very first large mural in the city of Banja Luka in Bosnia And Herzegovina. This vivid and colorful piece is titled "Find Your Way To Fly".
Invited by the local Flaster Jam organization, this large mural was their first collaboration, and from the photos we just received, a very successful one! Mixing Artez's bright colors and cheerful patterns with Lonac's masterful photo realistic elements, this surrealist piece surely brightens up the side of a residential building somewhere in Banja Luka. Working on this piece for almost an entire week, both artist showed great skills and imagination by composing and completing this complex dreamy image.
Check out more fantastic detail photos and some process photos take by the artists after the jump and make sure you leave a comment about this piece.
