Who is that masked woman? Meet Anonymous Artist Friend

Published on May 09 2013


 

She’s like the Easter bunny with penchant for the creative rather than chocolate.

With her basket in hand - and in disguise - Anonymous Artist Friend (AAF) has been dropping off mason jars filled with colourful balls of homemade play dough at benches, computer terminals, study carrels and dining tables throughout campus this spring.

All the while she has been providing an outlet for people’s inner artists, making the idea of creating art as easy as possible.

“People say ‘Oh, I’m not creative at all,” says AAF, a visual arts student who has asked to remain anonymous. “That’s not true. I believe everyone has creativity and by setting up a road block, you’re setting yourself up to fail.”

In the weeks since AAF, decked out in a Robin mask a la Burt Ward, started doing play dough drops and asking people to create something, then submit a photo of their handiwork via Twitter or Facebook, she has seen plenty of success.
