Being your Authentic Creative Self with Anna Dugan/ @annadidathing
Hi there! My name is Anna, also known as Annadidathing.
Annadidathing is a first-generation Filipinx American artist based in Salem, MA with a BFA from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
My name is Anna and I paint murals, create chalk art, and design digital work that often incorporates my illustrations. My work celebrates my heritage, navigates the complexities of identity as a mixed race person in the US, and creates space for vulnerable & honest mental health discussion through vibrant colors, storytelling, & folk art inspired work. My goals are to create work that is accesible, to create more Filipinx representation in public art, and to use my art to weave emotional bonds within diverse communities. My favorite kind of work to create is public art that engages communities & creates healthy dialogue that challenges the viewer to learn, reflect, or act.
