Meet The Artist

Alia Bensliman

Alia Bensliman’s artwork reflects her view of life and sentiments about the current state of our society, socio political issues, taboos, religion, relationships, health, and human rights. She grew up in Tunisia, North Africa, which is a crossroads of eastern and western influences and can be seen in her work. She is excited to engage our community in a graphic dialogue about Isles and our influence on the people and communities of Trenton.

Guests of our Spring Celebration will have the opportunity to create in community with the guidance of Alia Bensilman, masterful artist and teacher.
