My name is Mohammed Murshed; I was born in Taiz and raised in Sana'a, Yemen. While living with my parents and my little brother, the community was lively and full of friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, many died due to the war, especially the devastating war in 2015 with the Saudi-led coalition. I moved to the United States during the Arab Spring and saw many of my friends vanish. I consider myself one of the lucky ones able to escape war before it was too late for me.
I work with paint, sculpture, textile, video, sound, programming for art, and video games. I am interested in challenging myself and in trying things that I haven't done before. In my art, I aspire to bring awareness to Yemen's issues and unpack my trauma layers.
