Artist's Statement

I want to change the whole world.


Twenty-six year old award winning Screenwriter, Playwright, Filmmaker and Multimedia Visual Artist Isa Benn is currently based out of Brooklyn, New York and Toronto, Canada. She is a first generation, Toronto native of African-Canadian and Caribbean-Canadian descent. With several highly visual-sensory ‘handicaps’, including synesthesia and or ideasthesia, she has parlayed these long-time impediments into an extraordinary understanding of visceral-visual language and expression. Her stylistically introspective work deals predominantly with experiential culturalism, colour, class, sexuality, gender, and magical realism.
