A protest artist from Auchinleck has highlighted the plight of the Yemeni people with his latest work.

Brian Carey is known for his thought provoking art which has previously focused on murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Syrian Civil War and other humanitarian crises of the 21st century.

His latest piece was created at the Woodroad Park in Cumnock and coincided with peace talks being held by the United Nations (UN) in Sweden to try and stop the violence in Yemen.

Over 3.1m people have been displaced as a result of the Yemeni Civil War which broke out in March 2015. More than 50,000 civilians have been killed in the conflict and over 84,000 children have died from starvation.

Brian told the Chronicle: "I did this piece to coincide with latest ongoing Peace Talks for Yemen that are being hosted in Sweden by the UN.

"Yemen is top of the list for global Humanitarian catastrophes. The UN reports a conservative estimate of over 84,000 children below the age of five who have died in the three-and-a-half-year conflict from malnutrition.

"The UN also predicts that if conflict continues, Yemen will need more in humanitarian aid for 2019 than Syria received in 2018.

"Unfortunately the young seem to suffer through no fault of their own."

The display at the Woodroad Park is the latest in a series by of works Brian to highlight the conflict. In November, he received the solidarity of the people of Glasgow when displaying part of the series on Buchanan Street.
