Political Cartoonist Nik Kowsar

Iranian political cartoonist Nik Kowsar had to flee Iran for fear of persecution for the social commentary of the Iranian government. His story is an amazing testament to the power of social statement based visual expression. Sometimes we need art that shows us what the world could be, but more importantly we need art to better explain what the world is.

Interview with Kowsar can be found here.
