Art has an extraordinary capacity to provoke, protest and enlighten.

Less than two days after I executed the mural collage of “Subjugation” in the heart of Paris, the collage was brutally ripped down.

My work, especially the political work, has suffered a lot of blurring, disfigurement across the years, but every time it happens it makes me realize that I am on the right track.

“Tihama” My third mural in Hudaydah city.

 

عندما وصلت الحديدة, مررت بهذا المكان في الصورة, كانت هناك امرأتان تطبخان على قدر فوق كومة من الأحجار والحطب. كان حولهن أطفالهن وخلفهن هيكل يشبه الكوخ مرفوع بأعمدة خشبية وفوقه منشورة خرق من الملابس البالية. ما زالت في ذاكرتي ابتسامتهن على الرغم من قساوة حياتهن. رجعت ثاني يوم إلى نفس المكان لأطبق هذه الجدارية على جدار مطبخهن الذي على الرصيف, والتي اسميتها ب “تهامة”.
جداريتي الثالثة والتي طبقتها على الجدار في مدينة الحديدة، 25 نوفمبر 2017, ضمن مجموعتي الفنية “وجوه الحرب”.

When I arrived at Hudaydah, I passed by this exact place shown in the image. There were two women cooking on a pile of stones and wood. They were surrounded by their children and behind them a cottage-like structure raised with wooden pillars and above it were worn-out clothes. I still remember their smile despite their harsh lives. I returned the next day to the same place to put this mural on the wall of their “kitchen” on the pavement, and named the mural “Tihama”.
I installed the mural in Hudaydah, November 25, 2017. It’s part of the new art collection Faces of War (FOW).
