Please join us in celebrating Daphne Odjig, recipient of a 2008 Honorary Doctorate degree from OCAD.

A painter, activist and educator, Daphne Odjig was appointed Member of the Order of Canada in 1986. Her work, which fuses indigenous and Western art histories into a unique vision that bridges Native and non-Native cultures with elegant narratives, has been exhibited around the world. Over the course of her career, Odjig, who is of Potawatomi, Odawa, and English descent, has developed a distinct style based on the abstracted human form. The visual motif central to her work is the circle, which to the Ojibwa signifies completion and perfection, and is symbolic of women. Now a resident of British Columbia, she continues to revolutionize painting and creative practice through her commitment to exploring and communicating the continuity between tradition and contemporary practice.
