Dato Abdul Rahman Rahim

Abdul Rahman was born in Penang in 1944 and had his earlier 
education at Bukit Mertajam High School (Province Wellesly) and
Maxwell School ( Kuala Lumpur). 

He Started painting when he was in secondary school with art
being one of his favourite subject. He graduated with a Bachelor 
Arts (Hons) degree from the University of Malaya and later enrolled
at the Canberra School of Art, Australia, with emphasis on landscape
painting as one of the major studies

Better known as a landscape-artist, he paints only for the sake of 
enjoyment and records nature's beauty and man's relationship
towards his environment. His painting in oil incorporates a profusion
of the local colours which culminate in his belief that one must 
harmonize with the environment and respect it.

"The joy of painting is when you do it for nothing else than your own
satisfaction and to capture something you personally see as inspiring,
beautiful and God's creation

Abdul Rahman continues to paint, travel and visit galleries and exhibitions
in fulfilment of this undertaking and his personal indulgence in the art world
