Raphy, painter

“Raphy's painting immediately grips the viewer with the perfection of the technique. Tasty material, without ever an exaggeration of thickness coming to taint with suspicion the play of highlights on tones obtained most often thanks to the skilful use of glaze. This masterful manipulation of color is just one of the many assets available to the author. His manual ease allows him to express without hesitation an inner poetry which, as far as we are concerned, has deeply touched us.
