Icy & Sot in Los Angeles- Is this the Face of a Sucker?

Icy & Sot get up on Melrose with a fresh new multi-faceted piece.

The main part of the art is a two person life size wheat paste of a stencil featuring Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad squatting next to each other on the ground.

Then, all over the two men and all around them are little stencils of cockroaches.  The cockroaches go everywhere, from the sidewalk to the walls.  If you follow the bugs all the way to the corner the cockroaches get traced back to a storm drain.  Dig the interaction with how they are climbing on the aptly named graffiti bomb from 'Bugs'.

All under a poster referring to the face of a sucker.  

Cool stuff.  And watch out in the news. Israel just admitted to bombing inside Syria and Iran has vowed revenge.  Hope not, but it seems that World Ward III might be brewing in the Middle East.
