Meyer Vaisman

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".
