The first international artists commissioned to paint in Iran

Forty years after the Iranian Revolution, two Australian artists were given a rare opportunity to paint a mural in the country's capital.

They are the first international artists invited and commissioned by the Tehran City Council and the Australian Embassy to paint a mural in the country.

After three weeks of traveling Iran and studying the culture, the artists were inspired to paint two men they met in a bazaar, who were repairing a traditional Persian carpet.

The finished mural is a six-storey high, 40 metre wide painting aptly called "The Carpet Repairmen".
