The article focuses on the struggles of gallery owner Mark Clark and some artists against the border wall made by the U.S. It states that the fight for the wall was started by Clark in 2006 by making the wall into a canvas that shows the frustrations of the people in Mexico. Clark says that the said wall between Mexico and the U.S. shows a political issue between the two countries and they will continue to fight for it until the wall will be removed.
