Saalik, charcoal piece, and two children


صعاليك, قطعة الفحم، وطفلان


في إحدى أحياء شمال صنعاء وقبل أسبوعين، وفي دقائق انتظاري لصديقي هاني محمد، جاء “سامي وسمير” وهما طفلان من جيران هاني وجابروني وبعد ان سألاني عن عملي أجبتهم، فطلبوا ان أطبق لهم.. اخذت قطعة فحم ورسمت شخصية “صعاليك” على الجدار وانضموا للرسم  وخطوا ذات الجدارية لكن بطريقتهم الطفولية الرائعة والمميزه. على الجانب الأيسر قام “سمير” برسم منزلان أيضا.

“الصعاليك” ستضل أيديهم إلى أن تنتهي الحروب في العالم.

Saalik, charcoal piece, and two children

In a neighborhood north of Sanaa two weeks ago, and during the waiting for my friend Hani Mohammed next to his house, “Sami and Samir” two children of the neighborhood came and made a conversation with me, after they knew my work, they asked me to show them how I do this, then I took a piece of charcoal and draw one of my characters  ” Saalik”, which means “Poor”, after that, they did join me in drawing on the wall, in their wonderful unique childish way of drawing, they draw “Saalik”, and on the left “Samir” add “Houses” in the mural.

“Saalik” where  their raised hands will stay like this until the wars end in the world.
