Siona Benjamin is a painter originally from Bombay, now living in the US. Her work reflects her background of being brought up as a Bene Israel Jew in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India. In her paintings she combines the imagery of her past with the role she plays in America today, making a mosaic inspired by both Indian miniature paintings, transcultural myth, and iconography.
