A master of colours, geometrical shapes and forms, Rafiee Ghani presents this robust and boisterous artwork that is alluring and aesthetically-pleasing. His works are known for their loud and dynamic colours and brush strokes where his Intimism styles are very well established where he is known to produce paintings of still life. Aesthetics form an important part of Rafiee’s paintings where he uses balance and composition to their fullest potential, often producing artwork, which are both aesthetically pleasing and artistic.
Born in Kulim, Kedah in 1962, Rafiee Ghani is one of Malaysia’s venerable fine artists. He started learning art at the De Virge Academie Voor Beeldende Kunst at The Hague in the Netherlands before he continued his studies at Institut Teknologi MARA in Dungun. It was in Europe that Rafiee gained his inspiration and exposure in art where he visited all the great spaces and museums. Consequently, he drew his inspirations through old masters like Vincent Van Gogh and Henri Matisse and their works.
