Yasmin Alibhai-Brown

It was Yasmin Alibhai–Brown who, in 2000, had written a major feature for the Guardian Weekend magazine about “Muslim artists in Britain” The feature was introduced as “After years of dispiriting neglect, there has been a renaissance among Muslim artists in Britain. Not all of them devote their art to God, but most give short thrift to the notion of art for art’s sake and sheep in formaldehyde.” Alibhai-Brown’s piece was illustrated with portraits of Ali Omar Ermes, Zarina Bhimji, and Vaseem Mohammed.
