His mother belonged to the royal family of Arakkal, the only Muslim royal family to have ruled Kerala. Yusuf lost both his parents at an early age. Leaving the comforts of his house behind, the boy Yusuf left for Bangalore, lonely but with a passion to become a painter. The hardships that he faced at Bangalore honed the artist in him and sharpened his sensibility. He took a diploma in painting from Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat, Bangalore and later specialized in graphic print making from National Academy community studios, Garhi, Delhi.

Dr Kim Berman lectures at in the Fine Arts Department of The University of Johannesburg (UJ) and is the Director of The Artist Proof Studio in Newtown, Johannesburg. Berman is a hugely energetic person who is deeply committed to political and social transformation in South Africa. She uses printmaking as a vehicle to reflect on the social and political processes that surround her. She has the uncanny ability to take a neglected, peripheral landscape and to transform it into an image that not only comments on society but is also transformed into something beautiful and poignant.
In my work, landscapes have always provided a metaphor for South Africa’s transitions as a country: even in a poisoned, burnt, or smoke-filled landscape, the light on the horizon sparks the energy and hope for the cycle of change and imperative of renewal. Berman has also been concerned with fire and its ability both destroy and create.
