Martin Benka (21 September 1888, Kostolište - 28 June 1971, Malacky) was a Slovak painter and illustrator.  He is regarded as the founder of Modernist* 20th century Slovak painting, and was given the title National Artist.  He is buried in the National Cemetery in Martin.

Benka's ornamental style, influenced by folk art, contrasted sharply with the functional and purist approach of the German Bauhaus* and Soviet avant-garde* movements of that time. A contemporary of the famous C (showing 500 of 4212 characters).
