Tear Down Borders by Shannon Anderson

Design By:
Shannon Anderson Most of my work centers on typography and hand-drawn type, incorporating quotes and words into images that help raise awareness of the most pressing social issues we face today. I believe art is a powerful way to gain the public's attention, which I hope can lead to discussion, action, and ultimately, change.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

Tearing down borders was an idea a good friend of mine had mentioned to me, while I was creating protest signs for a rally. I immediately saw this design. People are so fixated on our southern border and the fear of who might cross that border, that we have forgotten that those people are humans. We are all trying to create opportunity and better lives for ourselves. Perhaps if we tore down those borders we are putting up both literally and figuratively we would all realize we are much more similar than we are different. — Shannon Anderson
