An alchemist at heart, RafiQ has always managed to make the ordinary – well extraordinary. He always find ways creates anything that he finds challenging, whether its reconfiguring the layout of his living room; tweaking a recipe that he doesn’t have an ingredient or two; recycling old clothes into artsy crafts; or find coolest things to do when he travels at a very little cost.

Born and raised in Singapore. His international adventures began twelve years ago where he was offered a job in Advertising and worked for over eight years in the US. Growing up with simple means of approach, he had experienced the Westernize culture of buying things we don’t need and the mentality of bigger is better.

The youngest of six brothers, his creative and competitive qualities turned heads. In the first grade, he distinguished himself amongst faculty by providing supporting illustrations in each of his written reports. Interest in an art contest in the Second grade took him to Singapore Zoological Art Competition, where he won first place for the best monkey drawing. Collectively, these early artistic adventures inspired him to view art as a vehicle for self-expression and financial independence – an inspiration that ultimately served him well.
He received his diploma in Fine Arts/Graphic Design from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in SIngapore and his Associates Degree in Visual Communications from the Art Institute of Dallas, Texas.

As a career for some people and a passion for other, for RafiQ, art is part and parcel of his life. From his earliest years he has followed his own path and striven against all odds to transform his wide talents into art that makes a deeply personal statement. His talents and concepts of art have been honed over the years and never forced into the container of a particular school or style. A melding of East and the West, the ancient and the modern, his work bears the stamp of his individual history and vision.

After a decade of a promising career in Advertising as a Creative Director in Dallas, he decided to expand his limitless curiosity by becoming an entrepreneur and started several businesses. Gaining lots of experiences, network of friends, and the nature of how notorious business can become, he decided to retract his passion for art.

Always seeking new possibilities and trying to redefine his life, he started this blog to create a simplistic lifestyle that utilize and promote old things and new experiences from being wasteful into something frugal and fulfilling.
