Shloka Shankar

Hi! I'm Shloka Shankar from Bangalore, India. I am, among other things, a freelance writer, poet, editor, publisher, and self-taught visual artist. I hold a Master's degree in English Literature and enjoy experimenting with Japanese short-forms and myriad found poetry techniques alike. I am passionate about creating digital art, abstract & geometric art, and collage/visual poems. Much of my work can be described as “happy accidents” that stem from my need to constantly give my thoughts a voice and shape. A Best of the Net nominee, award-winning haiku poet, and Society6 artist, I thrive in that liminal space intent on exploring the intersections of art and poetry in our everyday lives.


I don the hat of Founding Editor for the literary & arts journal Sonic Boom and its imprint Yavanika Press. I am the author of the microchap Points of Arrival (Origami Poems Project, 2021) and my debut full-length haiku collection, The Field of Why (Yavanika Press, 2022).

Whether infused with words or not, Shloka Shankar’s stunning abstract artwork pulsates with poetic depth and a unique, creative flair. Each of her designs propels you to ponder if there is something beyond what you actually see at first glance. I still stare in awe at the clocks and mug I purchased from her store and ask myself if there is more to it than meets the eye. I love her work!

Shloka’s beautiful art has been an excellent addition to many of my rooms. I’ve purchased prints, mugs, tote bags, a sticker, and a clock; everything has been excellent quality. Her lovely colors and prints are an easy way to brighten up your home, an outfit, or just your day!

Shloka’s mini art prints are dangerously good products to explore. They are striking in their subtlety, leaving you with an unexpected desire for more. So each time I turned a corner, I found myself ordering another one! Aside from being attractive holiday gifts for my co-workers, it also allowed me to pick something meaningful for each person. I am sure these beauties will continue to take centre stage long after the other holiday tchotchkes recede into the background. Shh...I kept one for myself, too!

Shloka’s virtual store is a treat for sore eyes. They reflect just the mood you want to display: bright colours to cheer  you up, black and whites to slice into your everyday thoughts, and patterns that are quirky, fun, and highly aesthetic. Her art is my go-to for gifting. Thank you, Shloka!

Shloka has developed a unique style of transforming her passions into exclusive designs and a wide-ranging product line using digital art, collage, and poetry. The resulting products are thoughts and creations straight from her heart which truly make them one-of-a-kind. For me, bric-à-brac is a perfect melange of vibrant colors, shapes, and artwork in a variety of styles.
