Following the success of his first show in 1960, Sherif Sobhi has become a contributor to oneman & group exhibitions in Egypt ,England ,France .Italy and the United State .He has long been associated with La Barcaccia gallery in Rome, where he has been a resident since  1957, but he has also contributed to numerous independently organized international exhibitions.

His paintings belong to museum and private collections in Egypt, Italy, and the United States. Cherif 
Sobhi is interested both in the figurative and textural dimensions of painting. In pursuing the latter he develops a rich surface on a wooden panel, a surface whose texture is further accented be the application of concentrated layers of varnish. This involved and unique technical approach aligns his work with that of contemporary Italian painters, but his selection of colors –vermillion, cobalt blue, azure green, and golden sepia, all of which are set against dark grounds – reveal his affinities to the iconic heritage of Egyptian art. A time-less presence pervades the still-life,landscapes, and figural studies which comprise his subjects. Their arrangement yields mythic or narrative overtones.
