Anna Valdez’s artistic career began unexpectedly: during an archaeological dig, she found herself keeping a sketchbook in which she reinterpreted spaces, maps, and lived experiences. Valdez, who has an academic background in archaeology and socio-cultural anthropology, thinks of her paintings and animations as cultural self-interpretations. “I am working on various narratives that investigate my own traditions and history through a visual format,” she says.
