As a Jewish artist creating cross cultural and transcultural art, Siona Benjamin’s perspective bridges the traditional and the modern, and sparks discourse across cultures.
Her paintings are populated by blue-skinned characters, self-portraits of sort, through which she explores ancient and contemporary dilemmas.
These characters enact myths from various cultures and religions — becoming symbols of a timeless global identity free of prejudices and boundaries.
A Bene Israel Jew from India, now living in the United States, Siona has an MFA in painting from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and an MFA in theater set design from the University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign.
