Born in 1974 in Selangor, Nik Rafin studied Advanced Photography in the USA and pursued a Minor in Fine Arts at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. He was also an illustrator for Milwaukee’s newspaper, The Marquette Tribune. Nik Rafin’s paintings are a reflection of the scenes and subjects that he captures through his camera lens, reinterpreted and reproduced in painting form with an extra touch of emotions. Some of the subjects of his works include buildings, wildlife and sceneries, with some done in sketches and some done in watercolour. Nik Rafin has also produced abstract paintings with his Escape series, a personal interpretation of how a person feels when escaping from negative emotions.
