A street artist in Sana’a, Murad Subay, is turning the ruins of war into his own art gallery.

“It’s just to show the ugliness of war – this is what happens by war. This is my way to to protest against the injustice of this war and for peace.”

His wife last year was granted a visa to study at Stanford, but she was only given a 12 month visa. Though the ban was lifted, she feels her future staying in the US for her studies is uncertain.

“Our country is what they call the third world. Our chances [are] not a lot. It sometimes comes once. So such a chance, to prove yourself in such a respectable university, it is really important and [precious] so she must and she will stay there to continue her studies. She is very brilliant.”
