Renowned Yemeni Artist Murad Subay Illustrates the Consequences of War
Award-winning artist from Yemen Murad Subay discusses his pursuit to depict the impacts of conflict through art.
From 2012 to 2015, Murad led five street art campaigns in Sana’a that reflect on the struggles local populations are forced to endure amid conflict. He encouraged members of the community to participate in the campaigns, from friends to people passing by on the street, to express their opinions about the challenges facing Yemen and stimulate debate.
Murad now resides in France where he continues to engage with the themes of international armed conflict and great power competition. Since 2015, he's launched five additional campaigns outside Yemen.
