‘Street Art by Murad Subay’: Turning Ruins of War into Walls of Revolution – Murad Subay in Discussion with Wes Williams

About this event

Nicknamed ‘the Yemini Bansky’ by the international media, Murad Subay (born in 1987 in Yemen) is a contemporary artist and political activist. Since the Yemeni revolution of 2011, Murad has launched several campaigns of turning the bullet-scarred walls and war-ravaged streets into symbols of hope and peace through his art. Vibrant hues of revolution and civil disobedience against the crumbling canvasses of war mark his signature artistic expression. In this session, Murad Subay will introduce his unique style of resistance in conversation with Wes Williams (Director, The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities).

Murad Subay has garnered several accolades for his revolutionary work across the world. He received the Freedom of Expression Arts Award (2016) by Index on Censorship Organization, UK awarded to artists ‘whose work challenges repression and injustice and celebrates artistic free expression’, the Art for Peace Award (2014) by Veronesi Foundation, Italy for ‘spreading a culture of peace’ and Artist Protection Fund Award (2020), USA among others. He has his works exhibited at the Imperial War Museum, Manchester, the Berliner Union Film Ateliers (BUFA) in Berlin and at Yemini Film & Arts Festivals in New York and Washington DC among other locations. ‘His work has recently been acquired by the British Museum, London. Murad is currently residing in France as a political refugee where he continues his activism.

This online event is part of the interdisciplinary graduate conference ‘Rethinking Resistance’ at the University of Oxford.

Theft or coincidence?!

Abyss 2017/ The Painted Bird 2019

  In the first picture, a mural entitled “Abyss” in November 2017, which the Yemeni artist Murad Subay painted as part of his campaign “Faces of War”, a collection of murals that he implemented in war zones, and ruins of the ongoing war in his country, Yemen.

  The second photo is a Poster of the film “The Painted Bird” September 2019, that directed by Czech director “Václav Marhoul”, a film narrated the war through the story of a child who lived in times of war.

  The Similarity between the mural “Abyss” 2017, and the poster of the Film 2019, is huge, and this raised a question about a copyright infringement  and the time difference is about two years.
 
This confirms either that there is artistic theft or that it is a coincidence that came after two years!!!

  We started to contact with the association which represent the artists copyrights and they are not sure that the Czech Law will support the case since there are no proof of copyright infringement.

The film is great.. but the respect of any artist and crediting the work should be guaranteed.

Unfortunately, It seems that the photo is not an enough proof !!!

في الصورة الأولى ، جدارية بعنوان “الهاوية” في تشرين الثاني 2017 ، رسمها الفنان اليمني مراد سبيع ضمن حملته “وجوه الحرب” ، وهي مجموعة من الجداريات التي نفّذها في مناطق الحروب ، وأنقاض الحرب المستمرة. في بلده اليمن.

الصورة الثانية هي ملصق لفيلم “الطائر الملون” سبتمبر 2019 ، للمخرج التشيكي “فاتسلاف مرهول” ، وهو فيلم يروي الحرب من خلال قصة طفل عاش في زمن الحرب.

التشابة بين الجدارية ٢٠١٧ وملصق فيلم ٢٠١٩ كبير ، مما يثير تساؤلاً حول انتهاك حقوق النشر والفارق الزمني حوالي عامين.

وهذا يؤكد إما أن هناك سرقة فنية أو أنها صدفة جاءت بعد عامين !!!

بدأنا في الاتصال بالجمعية التي تمثل حقوق التأليف والنشر للفنانين وهم غير متأكدين من أن القانون التشيكي سيدعم القضية نظرًا لعدم وجود دليل على انتهاك حقوق النشر.

الفيلم رائع .. لكن احترام أي فنان وتقدير العمل يجب أن يكون مضمونا.

للأسف يبدو أن الصورة ليست دليلاً كافياً !!!

Inspired by the mythology of Eve’s apple, and after losing her child and limbs, and the unablity to protect what was left of her beloved child, here Eva is trying to return the apple (bomb) to the sky.
