“Independance” Day 2018 and the U.S.’s Self Image

I created this artwork and meme to express my feelings about my country on this 4th of July, by 1st drawing a replica of the American flag, then literally cutting it up and putting it back together- the white stripes became the cage, the stars, barbed wire, with a few “refugee” pieces, to reflect the reality of this country.

Feel free the meme and to share and donate to RAICES and other organizations that embody our true interdependence.
