The Young Muslim Artists You Need to Follow on Instagram #11

Another week, another profile on a very talented young Muslim artist. And who do we have to thank for this consistent flow of creative excellence? You, our readers. We’re not gonna lie guys – over the past few weeks, there have been moments where we’ve doubted ourselves; when attempts to discover new artists have led to dead-ends, bizarre Etsy accounts, and shadowy corners of Instagram which, to be honest with you, made us want to throw our phones out the window.

Just when we thought all was lost and no new artists would enter our radar, we’re suddenly hit with a notification. One of you has slid in our DMs, suggesting a talent to feature on the next instalment of YMAs; and it’s almost always someone we would have never otherwise discovered.

Like Zahrah Zubaidah, who we were alerted to this week. Zubaidah is a painter and printmaker studying at the Glasgow School of Art. We’re big fans of her sketchbook, which features heavily on her Instagram feed. From the looks of things, she has a real eye for her surroundings, committing them to paper then holding her work in front of the subject that inspired it. We think we prefer Zubaidah’s interpretation of the environment more than the environment itself. You may disagree, but either way her photos allow you to make that comparison.

Check out some of our favourites below:

Zubaidah also creates larger canvases and more traditional portraits. We’re particular fans of this:

And this!

If you’re also enjoying Zubaidah’s work, then surely you know what to do by now? Head over to her Instagram and give the Follow button a resounding smash.
