Rafael: "Many have painted nature, the silent nature, trees, mountains, flowers and clouds, but I did not paint nature just because it is colorful and beautiful, but I prepared from the stocks of my visual memory a symphony of colors to install and compose between its small parts paintings of art envisaging harmony among them."

The paintings of the artist, Sabri Raphael, are distinguished by the search for light when he paints the subjects of nature. The topic deals with nature and the silent nature with its formations, and it is a summary of a long stage with painting. When you contemplate his paintings, you feel comfortable in looking, and it is easy for you to define the features of the wonderful painting, which are simple in the topic and very artistic in the Enjaz technique in terms of the wonderful harmonious colors inspired by the province of Hasaka. The artist, Raif, was able to find his own tactical style. This method has merit in creating paintings that lead you to astonishment and deep contemplation of the price of this art and its vast spaces.
