A master of Sarawakian landscapes, Raphael Scott AhBeng creates a canvas encompassing a potpourri of colours, whose tails and strings turn clutter into something beautiful.

Raphael has a gift for looking for beauty in the most mundane of things, ones that always escape our minds as being more than meets the eye. In this piece, he substantiates that nature is always brimming with colours, and that shrubbery does not necessarily have to look bare and dismal. He introduces a new way of looking at nature, sending out the message that nature can be aesthetically pleasing to the eye, even if you look at it in a different way.
