Roni Pinto is an Israeli artist living in New York. Her formal training is rooted in a fine arts degree from Ben-Gurion University in Israel, attended Visual art College in Israel and taught art and Hebrew in the past 10 years.
Her work explores philosophical and religious themes through the use of the Hebrew letters. She incorporates texts from the Bible, Jewish Blessings, and kabbalistic texts through her art, lending more to the impression that she is working towards something spiritual and ancient. Of course, Pinto's work is thoroughly contemporary.
As a professional artist, Roni Pinto has shown her work across Europe and New York and has had the opportunity to exposed to and learn about other cultures.
