For 53-year-old Perry Dino, a paintbrush and canvas are weapons for opposing the Hong Kong government as it faces mass protests against a now-suspended bill that would allow extraditions to mainland China. Since he started doing protest artwork in 2012, Dino has joined the annual June 4 Tiananmen vigil and he made 25 paintings during the 2014 umbrella movement when protesters paralysed parts of the financial hub for 79 days. Dino, a part-time teacher, says he hopes that when Hong Kong has true democracy, he can donate his artwork to a "democracy progression museum."
