About the Artist: Shareef Sarhan
Shareef Sarhan is a founding member of the Windows for Contemporary Art group in Gaza. As part of his efforts to bring art into the public space, Sarhan worked on producing Gaza Lighthouse, a 2016 project based on reusing the environment and war remnants to build the first ‘art’ lighthouse for Gaza. The positive public reaction to the project proved the success of Sarhan’s goal to transfer art from the showroom to the street. He has also won awards for his professional photography.
