The Further Adventures of Girl addresses the complexity of negotiating the current socio-political climate through the simplistic visual language of children’s media. Diyan Achjadi’s print series portray a single character, “Girl”, as she navigates perilous dystopic landscapes informed by news events and popular culture images in cartoon-like visual narratives.

Diyan Achjadi received a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art, New York (1993) and an MFA in Print Media from Concordia University, Montreal (2002). Her installation and print works have been exhibited across the US and Canada, in solo shows at galleries such as Alternator Gallery (Kelowna, 2006) and Access Artist Run Centre (Vancouver), Open Studio (Toronto), articule (Montreal), and AIR Gallery (New York); and in group exhibitions at the American University in Cairo, Malaspina Printmakers Gallery (Vancouver), Romo Gallery (Atlanta), The Bronx Museum of the Arts (New York).
