We are lucky to have at our disposal multiple avenues to express our viewpoints, ideologies and beliefs. We don’t always have the capacity to capture in words what our message is; language fails us and we have to find alternative ways to symbolise ideas. Art is an important vehicle by which we can still do this, whether it is graffiti on the side of a wall, ink on skin or imaginative creations used in street protests. These can sometimes be more powerful tools.
