Placing himself at the centre of his work, Sharif Persaud explores identity through his experience of contemporary life and autism.

The artist profoundly interested in his own body in society as a site of investigation, exploring sneezing, healthcare, hospitals, gangrene, cities, flats, benefits and his independence. Persaud questions his audience about their experiences and body.

This is Persaud's first solo exhibition, featuring his drawings, large paintings and award-winning short film The Mask.

Have You Ever Had is the culmination of the UK-wide EXPLORERS Project, highlighting the extraordinary contribution neurodiverse people make to art and culture.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
