Departing from his usual abstract works come a stunning landscape of watercolour and acrylic on paper. In his oeuvre of established Intimism style, Rafiee Ghani presents a field of what seems to be flowers and plants in his typical loud and dynamic colours. In a distant, a yellow mountain peaks through, in which the title of this painting is derived from. 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.
