Confrontational in its vulgarity and satire, Diana’s work commands its audience to acknowledge and feel the bizarre and ugly in our collective existence. His legacy is a wake-up call, a reminder of our ceaseless struggle to reconcile the absurd relationship between freedom of expression and the world of political correctness and censorship. Besides his foray into First Amendment martyrdom, Diana is a master of his craft and a champion of the authentic ethos of comic art. He asks that you don’t look away when he unforgivably holds up a mirror to a society that deemed his very act of drawing, a crime.
