Ria Shanker's international heritage inspires her signature aesthetic style. She describes herself as a global citizen. Originally from India, she spent most of her life in the Middle East; in Bahrain and recently, Dubai. Her background is a melting pot of cultures with unique qualities, which influenced what would become her creative expression.
The complexity of the mind, emotions, and intuition are common subjects of her work - a homage to the wonders of nature and women alike. She considers this to be beauty in its most natural form.
Ria has exhibited virtually at the Milan art gallery, and Azerbaijan art gallery, and has her work published in an Australian publication called Curatorial Volume 3: Leaders in Contemporary Art. She has had exhibitions in Dubai showcasing some of her recent work.
She has worked with a leading robotics company in London to be part of their immersive and interactive art experience.
