My name is Rajan Koshy
Artist & curator of Rice Straw Museum.



I am a Galveston artist & I create rice straw art. This unique ancient art is in the list of endangered form of leaf art. Less than 50 artists practice this ancient art around the world and I am the only rice straw artist in USA. I have created several Galveston landmarks & people portrait in rice straw (Dried leaves of rice plant) which will be of interest to Galveston community.

Rice Straw art is an ancient art existed many centuries ago but very few people knew about this art, also handfull of artists still practice this unique, beautiful leaf art. This art is in danger of being extinct. Not many people want to learn this art because they can make better living doing something else. I learned this leaf art working with some of the masters of this art. I lived with them and learned this art and practice this unique art in Galveston, Texas.

Rice Straw Museum on the web at ETSY is to PRESERVE, PROMOTE & PROTECT this ancient art from extinction and introduce this beautiful art to America & the world. Rice Straw Museum has the largest collection of leaf art anywhere in the world and I am selling some of that collections to the public to create an awareness of the beauty & uniqueness of this special art.

You have to see it to believe it, LOOK up close, use magnifying glass if needed to see how intricate it is. They are made out of rice straw ( Dried leaves of rice plant). Some of my art especially the portraits are created with thousands of tiny pieces of rice straw & it takes weeks create a single piece. No color paint or dye added to the natural color of rice straw. All the hues you see in rice straw art is natural colors of rice straw. This art originated before we knew how to make color, paint or dye. The artists selected & sorted out different shades rice straw, opened it with a sharp tool flattened it out, apply glue ( gum Arabic is the glue used & it is the sap from a tree ) on one side placed it on a cloth or paper and cut with a double edged razor blade. Before the razor blades they used sharp stones to cut the rice straw. Everything used to create rice straw art is natural substances like leaves, rice straw, glue, stones etc. even now the artists use the same techniques as used by their forefathers.


Rice Straw Museum is dedicated to preserve, protect & promote this beautiful ancient art from extinction and to introduce this unique art to the world.

NO TWO LEAVES or my handmade leaf art look EXACTLY ALIKE.

I promote Rice Straw Museum through social media like twitter (over 127,500 twitter friends ), Facebook, pinterest etc.

Have you ever heard of ancient leaf art? Not many people have seen it or heard of it. This unique art is in the list of endangered form of leaf art. Less than 50 artists around the world practice this ancient art and I am the only rice straw artist in USA. I am the ONE & ONLY artist who practice this unique leaf art in USA.
