This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Meyer Vaisman was born in Caracas, Venezuela, attended Parsons School of Design, and currently lives and works in New York.

Vaisman's initial proposal was a performance for which he would dress up as a Border Patrol agent, appearing to be "lost" driving his patrol car in Tijuana. However, this proposal posed a high risk for the artist himself due to the violent atmosphere around the border at the time. After a series of investigations, but with the original idea still in mind, the artist created an installation in downtown Tijuana, using the existing tourist attraction of the famous zebra-painted mules. Vaisman suited himself up in the border patrol uniform, and painted the zebra cart as an official vehicle. For one weekend, the burro-patrol was located at one of the corners of Ave. Revolucion and functioned normally as a photograph station for "Tijuana souvenirs".
