|Artists are an inseparable part of society. They tend to express emotions through different genres of art, such as painting, sculpture, art installation, cartooning and digital art to name a few. I witnessed this kind of artistic expression during the recently concluded farmers protest in India. Artists played an important role in documenting and narrating the movement as it unfolded from the very first day of the movement until the farmers returned back to their homes in November-December of 2021. The artists were not just from India but from various places around the world. Through their art, the artists showed their support for the farmers. This essay aims to bring to the reader some of those ways in which the artists supported the farmers.|
