Natasha Dangond is a visual artist whose work is largely inspired by her biracial identity, the stories of her ancestors, and the aim to create meaningful exchange of narratives.
Through multidisciplinary art, she explores methods of emotion-based storytelling while seeking to manifest a more empathetic world.
Her work is a culmination of studying dance, documentary photography, and filmmaking throughout her life- exploring multiple mediums due to her endless curiosity mixed with a desire to continue challenging her ideas that push her out of her comfort zone.
