Rollie Mukherjee is an artist of political resistance. We’ve seen artists croak for Israeli apartheid, croon anthems to US militarism, write poems & make paintings glorifying tyrannies of all kinds. That’s where all the fame & money are.
So when troubadours & artists portray & side with political resistance we cherish & honor them as the voices of the oppressed, as the voices of justice. That’s a very special calling & commitment.
This marvelous drawing titled “Resilience” depicts the occupation of Kashmir & the Intifada against it.
Long live Kashmiri Intifada! End the Indian occupation!
