Nature and landscapes are two things that Raphael Scott AhBeng holds dear to his heart. In classic AhBeng style, he expresses his love for the solitary environments with a stunning painting of the city of Kuching. “Painting is a way of expressing my feelings. I like to paint good things that give viewers a good feeling, and make them think and feel rejuvenated,” said AhBeng. That seems evident in this piece as he does incite the soothing and calm atmosphere that seems to emanate from his beloved hometown, Sarawak. With intense colouring and bold strokes, the display of the forms and colours instantaneously create an aura calmness and comfort while being close to nature at the same time.
