With its ability to symbolize complex abstractions in concrete forms, art has a unique potential to create awareness and facilitate mindset change for our survival and well-being. However, we should resist the tendency to believe that there is only one tactic or one way to effect change. We need multiple tools and different methods to reach diverse audiences. The artists' popular and free images enable them to imagine situations and consequences beyond boundaries. Art always reflects the conditions in which it is produced, just as it can add visual shocks and subtle impulses to traditional knowledge with its diverse and free perspective. According to İrhan, who trusts in the freedom and transformative power of art, distinctions such as materials, techniques, and themes are not of interest. It is possible to have an art form that speaks of the power of being together, establishes connections, and calls us to relate, using art as a means to explore ourselves and establish a broader meaning and purpose.
