A painting has the power to transport anyone to another world and allows for reflection and inward consideration of the spirit. The chaos of daily life Is challenged and re-shaped as peaceful respite stimulating healing and regeneration of the soul.
Rajul’s sparkling peacock graces a cozy corner of our bedroom, adding brightness, a touch of mystery and an interesting mix of color and texture to entice the eye. Rajul has a knack for creating art that both delights and engages the beholder.

Rajul Shah paints visual gems of luminosity. Multiple layers of color are worked into color field paintings that induce deep meditative silence. Often these fields include whimsical bits of story - people, trees and other landscape elements, for highly resonant imagery charged with emotional vibration. Viewers are sure to experience a transport to another world.

I bought a small painting from Rajul two years ago. It is exquisite and beautiful. The metallic flowers in the frame constantly change their hues and reflections throughout the day emanating feelings of peaceful flow. Although the painting is smaller in size, it has a great amount of energy and joy embedded in it. It can be used as a centerpiece or combined with other modular units. Rajul’s art work is joyful and energetic

"I have known Rajul for many years now and found her work to be both insightful and heartwarming. Her work specific to Japan captures the beauty and simplicity of this wonderful country in a way one would not expect from someone who has not grown up here. A truly and amazingly talented artist!”
Ken Shearer, Tokyo Japan
