Violet Indigo Blue, Etc. or VIBE aims to be an online space where poetry and other forms of art intersect. We are concerned with bending genre, making the art world more accessible, and breaking down preconceived notions of what art can be and who it is for. We are interested in the materiality and physicality of the production of art, as well as the political and social contexts that surround it.

We are explicitly geared towards the political left. We are opposed to any form of bigotry or discrimination. We want to celebrate artistry and criticism within a space that welcomes critique and inquisitiveness.


Violet Indigo Blue, Etc. is run by Umang Kalra, a queer Indian poet and visual artist. Her work can be viewed at
