A tale of a Libyan artist

Mohammad bin Lamin used art to survive his time in prison before he was set free after the revolution.

    Al Jazeera talks to Libyan artist Mohammad bin Lamin who used art to survive his time in prison before the country's revolution.

    From drawing on his prison cell walls with whatever he could find to his post-revolutionary art including sculptures made from used bullets and shells, bin Lamin hopes his art will offer a spiritual answer for the daily oppression around the world.
