Razwan Ul-Haq

Razwan Ul-Haq


Phobiastan – a North of England Art and Poetic Response to Islamophobia.

Phobiastan touches on themes of Islamophobia and belonging in the North of England. Through imagery of rain, Arabic calligraphy and interesting facts –  such as the reaction of the first Arab explorer to England 850 years ago – Razwan moves the reader towards healing in a fragmented world.

Razwan Ul-Haq is an artist and author, blending English poetry and Arabic Calligraphy.  He is a widely exhibited artist whose work has been displayed in galleries and museums. His commissions include Land Art for the inaugural Tour de France of Britain and to celebrate the birthday of Her Majesty the Queen.
