Saman Oskouei (born 1985) and Sasan Oskouei (born 1991) are multi-disciplinary artists from Tabriz, Iran, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. The brothers collaboratively create nuanced political work. known for its simplicity yet resiliency and positive undertone. They address Humanitarian Topics such as borders and refugees, capitalism, inequalities and environmental issues. While the nature of the messages Saman and Sasan convey is quite consistent throughout their work, the techniques and materials used are versatile and playful. from paintings and sculptures, installations and interventions, to videos and photography. In their approach, the medium is secondary to the message and serves to support and deliver the latter.
