About Anna U. Davis


“We only see the top of the iceberg. What lurks beneath, are stereotypes highly steeped in tradition, culture and religious beliefs. These stereotypes are holding women back from reaching their full potential. It will take all of us to change this pattern.”

Anna U. Davis was born in Lund, Sweden and moved to the United States in 1998. She graduated with a BA in Painting from The University of the District of Columbia in 2002.

Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including those at The Corcoran Gallery of Art, The Long View Gallery and Hillyer Art Space, all in Washington, DC. She also exhibited at the 13th Havana Biennial in Cuba in 2019.

Davis is known for her bold, colorful, graphic mixed-media work, where she explores her fascination with gender relations and social structures.

She received the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and has received multiple Artist Fellowships from the DC Commission. Her work can be found in public and private collections in the United States and Europe. Davis currently resides and works in Washington, DC.
