Street Art in Tehran, Iran Shows Need for Cultural Expression

 - Jan 8, 2009
Seeing graffiti in North America and Europe is no shower, but seeing it in Iran may come as a surprise to many. Cultural prejudices may be the reason the images in the gallery above evoke feelings of confused curiosity, but as the pictures show, a need for self expression isn’t limited to the west.

The photo gallery shows a variety of images tagged ‘Street Art Tehran,’ and are only a small sampling of the urban art pictures from this part of the world available on the web.
