Sabba Khan is a London based South Asian Muslim visual artist, graphic novelist and architectural designer. Her work looks at unpacking rootlessness, displacement and intergenerational trauma faced by migrant communities who sit in the aftermath of colonial legacy. She uses lived experience, memories and oral histories to expose how wider policies affect our day to day.

Sabba Khan’s debut graphic novel, The Roles We Play, is published by Myriad Editions, supported by Jerwood Arts and is now available in bookshops nationwide. She is joint Eisner Award winner for Best Anthology 2020 for ‘Drawing Power’ where she was both front cover artist and key contributor.
