From Coast to Coast, Raziah Roushan has been making her mark on the American public as a professional artist and arts advocate. For nearly two decades, Roushan has been working as a professional artist in mediums such as oil, acrylic, charcoal, pastel, aerosol, printmaking, as well murals, and large-scale chalk art. Upon receiving her Bachelors of Fine Art from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland Oregon (completed 2004), she has traveled the planet teaching, networking, and contracting for the purposes of visual art.
Roushan’s own art includes a variety of symbolism, visual genre collage, and a palette of diverse techniques. She blends traditional methods with contemporary styles such as graffiti, text, stencil and content driven inspirations to a body of work that some call statement and purpose. It is through a juxtaposition of imagery that Roushan develops a story on the canvas by which she invites the viewer to open into conversation and debate. Her portfolio includes over 50 exhibitions, and over 20 large-scale murals.
After years of working with non-profit agencies across the United States, Roushan sought out a Masters Degree in Art Administration from the Savannah College of Art & Design (completed 2012). Her pursuit of a Masters Degree further advanced her business skills as a professional artist, arts organization manager, and as a consultant. Some of Roushan’s most notable positions held include being the Chalk Artist Chair for Carlsbad ArtSplash, Lead Art Instructor for Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, Grant Writer and Foundry Art Studios Manager for New Village Arts Theatre, Program Director for San Marcos Arts Council, and Director of Marketing at Oceanside Museum of Art.
It is by Roushan’s continuously positive attitude, love of art, and constant traveling that she has woven a massive network of arts organization leaders, artists, and philanthropists. Whether grocery store conversations, hosting at community events, or classroom lectures, Raziah Roushan continues to inspire hearts and activate minds.
