Quotes about Fathi HassanEdit
- These saints look at nothing, as if facing the ideality of a timeless space and therefore without the sound of worldly looks.

(Achille Bonito Oliva)

- His black saints, facing a timeless space and without noise, fix nothing, expressing the absolute suffering of African culture, deep and highly symbolic and solemn elephants adorned with red are exposed to the eyes of the world (Giovanni Carandente)
