In his works, Sharif breaks with the traditional notions of space, time, form and social interaction. About his creative process Hassan Sharif once said: «I'm not trying to make magic of some kind that would impress an audience as to how the work is created. There are no secrets. The philosophical or psychological question here is how, as an artist, I give myself the authority to make art.»
