|A self taught artist with many achievements, Mohamed Razif has had works selected for exhibit in the Philip Morris Contemporary Arts Awards (1999) and has also received the Incentive Award in the Shah Alam Open (2007). He has participated yearly in the ‘Pameran Rasa Alam’ held in University Kebangsaan Malaysia. He was also commissioned to paint a portrait of the former Chancellor of University Kebangsaan Malaysia - Dato’ Sham bin Sani.
Passionate about painting, Razif defines himself as a realist painter and oil on canvas is his chosen medium. His subject matter is predominantly still life though he has interest in portraying other concerns as evident in his painting Pick it up, read it, have faith and it will guide you to the right path.
An award winning piece received in the Shah Alam Open in 2007, this painting features a dark, ominous tunnel stretching out into distance, occasionally broken by bright colours. A boy is looking out seeming to contemplate the path that is before him.
