As the war in Yemen continues to inflict suffering on its millions of civilians, a Yemeni graffiti artist is taking her art to the streets of Sanaa to draw images of war and hunger in the conflict-torn country.
Haifa Subay, 28, is weaponizing her art to disseminate messages of peace at home and to try to bring the world's attention to the toll that war has taken on Yemenis, particularly women and children.
"İ wanted to send a message of peace, a plea to stop the fighting and alleviate the suffering caused by the ongoing war," Subay told VOA from her home in Sanaa.
Subay said her art campaign focuses on various humanitarian and social consequences of the conflict, including famine, land mines, displacement, child soldiers, child marriage and domestic violence against women. She chose Sanaa's most populated areas to make sure her striking art is seen by as many people as possible.
