Yusuf Contemporary was founded as a result of a chance meeting between Khozema Patanwala & Firdaus Nagree.
Both lovers of art..
One the art dealer, the other the marketer.
Khozema has been fascinated by Indian art for more than 20 years and was responsible for setting up the Shades & Wood art gallery in Kensington, London.
Firdaus has a varied background including strategic business consultancy, furniture retail, property development, banqueting, new media digital marketing and product distribution.
