G13 Gallery is delighted to present Bumi Bertuah, a solo exhibition by our local artist, Rafiee Ghani. Bumi Bertuah is a synthesis of all of Rafiee’s travels. This new series of paintings captures his experiences and his memories along his long travels across several continents, countries and places where he encountered all kinds of people from various ethnic groups and cultures, walked in the footsteps of famous European artists, and admired the uniqueness and greatness of the Creator.

  • Bumi Bertuah Ⅱ, 2022, Acrylic on Canvas, 122 × 122cm

In this series, Rafiee challenged himself to use acrylic, as opposed to oil paint, his favourite and usual medium, as can be seen in previous series of paintings. Holding on to the principle that painters should be versatile, he does not want to restrict himself to just one technique or style. He wants to challenge his mind and his creative process.
