Sharif Persaud has a long association with Project Art Works and has been a key contributor to much of PAW’s recent output, including several film projects. Placing himself at the centre of his work Sharif uses different art forms; video, photography, drawing, painting and printing, to reflect the narrative of his life. Through his work we see the world from his idiosyncratic perspective, the different forces that have impacted him in the past and how these shape his thinking about the future.
Sharif was recently awarded Silver from Arts Award. Read Sharif’s blog on his Arts Award at artsawardsproject.com.
