Blue Like Me: Paintings by Siona Benjamin

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Siona Benjamin is an artist originally from India, of Bene Israel Jewish descent. Having grown up in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim society, having been educated in Catholic and Zoroastrian schools, having been raised Jewish and now living in America,she has always had to reflect upon the cultural boundary zones in which she has lived. She feels a need to make art that will speak to her audience through similarities, not differences as she contributes to a much-needed "repair" (Tikkun) through art.

Siona Benjamin

Artist
Siona Benjamin is a painter originally from Bombay. Her work - exhibited in the US, Europe and Asia - reflects being brought up Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India. Her paintings combine the imagery of her past with the role she plays in America today, making a mosaic inspired by Indian miniature paintings, Sephardic icons and the artistic traditions of her Bene Israel heritage.
