After a military coup, artists across Myanmar are making protest art to share their struggle for democracy with the world—See images here

Myanmar has been engulfed in protest since February 1, when Burmese army general Min Aung Hlaing seized control of the government in a military coup, refusing to accept to the landslide election victory of the National League for Democracy and its leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.

In the face of internet outages, heavy military presence, and nighttime raids and arrests, artists are using their skills to share the message of the opposition Civil Disobedience Movement, or CDM, with the world.

“Art is not only a tool against the government, but also a record to reflect on the recent situation,” Yangon artist-based artist Khin Zaw Latt told Artnet News. “It is a part of history.”

Members of the Myanmar Cartoonists Association took to the streets of Yangon on February 7, holding up cut outs of cartoon characters, and have created political cartoons decrying the actions of the military.
