    “Target Exceptions” addresses the challenges of both visiting and becoming a resident of the United States for many people. As it turns out, there are various target criteria that make a person an ideal candidate to immigrate, but most people who might long to fulfill the “American Dream” are exceptions to the target qualifications, especially considering the attitudes and attempted policies of the current administration.

    Resident status in the U.S. is hypothetically granted for four main reasons: family ties, employment, status as a refugee, and to promote diversity.

    In other words, it will most likely be family or business/employment connections that are the most viable route to a U.S. visa considering that refugees and people who would expand diversity seem altogether unwelcome in the U.S. at the moment. I’ll be donating proceeds of this print to the ACLU to support their advocacy work for immigrant communities.

Shepard Fairey (Obey)

Born in: 1970 United States

Famous artist

Biography

Shepard Fairey alias Obey was born in 1970 in Charleston, US.

He gets to know the universe of graphic design very early, at age 14, when he draws images to be printed on t-shirts and skateboards. He is influenced by the work of artists such as Andy Warhol or Russian artist Alexander Rodtchenko.

In the late 1980s, Obey and a group of friends from the Rhode Island School of Design create a series of stickers and posters with the figure of wrestler Andre the Giant and stick thousands of them on the walls of American cities. Andre the Giant Has a Posse is one of the first and most important "viral" Street Art campaigns, showing the ability and force of this new illegal means of expression.

His work became world famous during the U.S. presidential campaign in 2008, with the creation of the poster HOPE of Barack Obama that became an icon of the campaign. The Institute of contemporary art in Boston considered Obey as one of the best and most influential street artists of our time.
