Asif’s art practice focuses on drawing, illustration, design, and photography. Through his art, he aims to portray the culture and heritage of rural landscapes. He finds inspiration in the colours, textures, and stories of his surroundings. The primary themes that he explores in his art are the disparities between urban and rural standards of living. In addition to urban settings, Asif  draws inspiration from rural constructions and seamlessly incorporates them into his art. His work is a fusion of the tensions, affections, fears, and everyday experiences that make up life's tapestry.  Through a series of works, he aims to showcase architectural and structural elements in motion, employing overlapping and juxtaposition techniques to present multi-layered images and forms. His art reveals the differences and interconnections between urban structures and socio-political aspects across various geographic locations.
