Atousa - Soulystic
A T O U S A   R A I S S Y A N, 

Atousa Raissyan is an award-winning contemporary spiritual abstract artist, as well as an accomplished photographer.

She is an inspirational artist with soul, and her colorful spiritual work is uplifting, thoughtful, and with heart.

Atousa’s art, often inspired by quotes and poetry fitting perfectly together in harmony; promotes love, healing, trusting your innate wisdom, and inner peace.

Most of the inspiration comes from Rumi, Hafez, Osho, Mooji, and Kahlil Gibran.

In the description for most of the paintings you will see the quote or poem that inspired the art work. Her work is a representation of her journey to rise above life’s challenges to be a witness of those challenges, share her life’s lessons through her art, and to inspire.

She wishes that her joy and excitement for life comes out in her art work and brings joy to whoever views them.
