Rafy: A Poet of Substantial Thought, Wisdom and Strength

Published

on

Rafy is an example of some of the finest poets to emerge on the world’s literary stage today. This young poet has garnered himself a loyal following due to his ability to weave an intricate, yet simple tapestry of words which easily convey their meanings to the everyday reader. Rafy refers to himself as a ‘Proud Pakistani’, and rightly so. Pakistan is a country rich with a varied literary history. Indeed, poets such as Allama Muhammad Iqbal, Meer Taqi Meer, and Hafeez Jullundhri have created some of the most treasured poetry in the world today and called Pakistan their home.

Continuing the tradition of proud, Pakistani poets, Rafy’s work often centers on the mystical relationship of love between two individuals. Interestingly enough, Rafy is able to accomplish this feat by dwelling on the simplicity of the emotion being felt at the moment, rather than dwelling on the cliche’d drama as so many other poets want to do. His brief, brisk and at times, haunting poems often relate the tale of loves entanglements, without over burdening the reader. Indeed, Rafy’s poetry encompasses a breath of fresh air, as he continually and consistently immerses us in a world of gentle words, backed by strong emotion.

At times, his poems appear to be tied together with a subtle, and gentle thread, while each maintaining its individuality and uniqueness. Many of his selections concern the affairs of the heart, including its frustrations, joys and duality. His poem, for instance, “For You”, reflects on the poet’s interpretation of the contrary path love sometimes takes, likening it to a battle within one’s soul. For a short time, Rafy allows us into his own, aesthetic, creative inner sanctum, with each new poem telling us a bit more of how he sees the world around him, and his reaction to it. A keen observer of life, love and its tribulations, Rafy’s style has earned him a steadfast, loyal fan base, and it is with great pleasure and anticipation that followers of Rafy’s poetry continue to await his upcoming works.

Here are some of his poems:

For over two decades, Skin Design Tattoos has been a leading name in the tattoo industry. Recently, it opened its flagship studio in the vibrant Soho district of New York City. The launch, sponsored by Philipp Plein and Villon, attracted a glamorous crowd, including top figures from New York’s entertainment and tattoo scenes. Notable attendees included comedian Shiggy, members of VH1’s “Black Ink Crew,” and renowned tattoo artist Keith Hernandez. Photographer Josh Sobel elegantly captured the event, which was coordinated by PR professionals Shawn Germain of Tomorrow’s Group and Johnny Donovan.

The studio’s design, featuring sleek lines and raw brick, provides an elegant backdrop for the intricate black and grey realism tattoos that Skin Design is famous for. This aesthetic is echoed in the collections of sponsor Philipp Plein, known for his use of stark lines and intense shading to add depth.

Robert Pho, CEO and Founder of Skin Design, shared his artistic vision at the event, describing his designs as “not just art; they are narratives of life’s stark contrasts, capturing tales of survival, redemption, and transformation.”

The studio is also known for its comprehensive apprenticeship program, where artists like Reena Pho, now a seasoned tattooist at Skin Design, hone their skills under Robert’s mentorship. Robert also hinted at future philanthropic efforts through a non-profit aimed at supporting aspiring artists who face financial constraints.

Since its inception, Robert Pho’s dedication has driven Skin Design Tattoos to international acclaim and a respected position in the tattoo world. The opening of the flagship studio at 285 Lafayette Street in New York is a testament to the brand’s enduring influence and innovation in tattoo artistry.
