And the Kitano Alley Gallery in Kobe, Japan
Born 1968 in Mumbai, India, grown up in the USA and now living in Tokyo, Japan; Rajul Shah retired from a 20-year career as a healthcare executive to pursue her passion in Art in 2012.
An up and coming artist who leverages her passion for travel and adventure, Rajul seeks to create conceptual and expressionistic compositions of landscapes and people that capture the spirit of a place, a time, or a memory.
Influenced by her Indian heritage and time spent studying art in Japan, the richness of India with its festive colors and the aesthetic use of negative space in Japanese Brush Painting allow her to present unique expressions of color and space.
There is an evolution of artistic expression as Rajul experiments across mixed media to create texture and layers of color, integrating and blending a variety of materials including mica, acrylic, oil, gold, silver and copper. The result is a dynamic interaction of light and color.
After seeing her first Monet at the age of 10; Rajul knew she would learn to paint someday. She began her journey in photography where she learned the importance of composition. Drawing gave her an opportunity to “play” with space. After reaching Japan in 2012, Rajul heavily pursued studio classes in Drawing, oil and Nihonga (Japanese) painting. She came to love and focus on painting.
Her goal is to create paintings that impart emotion, whether it is excitement, desire, inspiration, peace or a sense of adventure.
(With) Peace... (In) ART... (To the) Soul.
