Murad Subay, an artist originally from Dhamar, Yemen, moved to the capital Sana’a with his family in 1993. He now uses the walls of the city to paint about the war there.
“Art gives hope and expresses the situation people are living,” he said. “It is the voice of people. In war, all voices are voices of hatred and destruction. What we do is show that there are other voices people can listen to. In times of war, even the smallest voices may save lives. Yemenis are in need of every voice in the world to push for stopping the war. The worst thing in war is when hope is lost. I personally also paint to protect myself from becoming hopeless.”
