Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik is an artist, chef and educator. Her artwork often uses food to celebrate and investigate culture and identity, especially around people of color and immigrant communities.
While much of Bhaumik’s work has been about bringing people together, her newest art installation focuses on an idea meant to keep people apart - Trump’s proposed wall between the United States and Mexico. At her show, Estamos Contra El Muro, or We Are Against the Wall, up now at Southern Exposure gallery in San Francisco, Bhaumik has put up a wall made of cinder-block-shaped piñatas.
