Roja Shams is a contemporary artist of Swedish and Persian descent. The underlying themes in her artwork deal with the expression of emotion and energy and her imaginative style blends together elements of surrealism, abstraction, and figuration.


Her artwork is often influenced by the mysteries of consciousness, exploring the integration of Eastern spiritual traditions and Western scientific principles. She incorporates inspiration from the five natural elements as well as plants, animals, and the cosmos into her work. 


As an artist Roja draws inspiration from her own life experiences. After attending art school in Sweden, her lust for adventure led her to the Indian Himalayas where she studied the ancient and vast science of Yoga. This experience sparked her creative vision, deeply inspired by the power of consciousness.  Each piece is a visual expression of the artist's own journey of self-discovery and introspection and her work explores the complexities of the human mind and spirit.

Having spent years living in Bali and creating art, she draws constant inspiration from the elements of animism and the interconnected patterns of the universe. Through her art, she invites the viewer to contemplate the boundless intelligence of the natural world and its power to inspire us.


Roja Shams' paintings bear witness to her dedication to the environment and the planet, as she imbues them with a reverence for nature by donating a portion of all sales to organizations dedicated to these causes.


Through her art, she seeks to inspire individuals to delve into their inner worlds with increased awareness inspiring them to self-explore the mysterious nature of existence.
