For Rafiee Ghani, it’s all about the mood. It is about feelings. Take for example, he has said that he does not merely paint melons or mangoes, he paints his “feelings” about them.

When we look at Rafiee Ghani’s paintings, we may notice quite a few things about him and his artworks. There is the love for the environment, and the passionate love for colour and that he looks at the world very differently. Both the colour and abstraction result in a hypnotising piece that beckon the viewer to dissect the narration behind it, trying to understand it and at the same time, change our view of what nature truly is like through Rafiee Ghani’s works.

Rafiee Ghani was born in Kulim, Kedah. He studied and obtained the De Vrije Academie Voor Bildeende Kunst at The Hague, Netherlands. Thereafter, he pursued his Diploma in Fine Art from Institut Teknologi Mara, Shah Alam. He then obtained his Master of Art in Fine Prints at Manchester Metropolitan University in 1987.
