When it comes to the works of Rafiee Ghani, it’s all about the mood and feelings. The love and passion he has for the environment as well as the way he perceives the world is very different. Thus, his works often result in colour and abstraction that is hypnotising and vastly different from other artists. This particular watercolour on paper artwork brilliantly depicts a floating mosque, as it is aptly titled so. An important part of Rafiee Ghani’s paintings is aesthetics, where he uses balance and composition to their fullest potential. This often produces artwork which are both aesthetically pleasing and artistic.
