“I am enamored with Superman and everything he stands for. He is the uberimmigrant, something people often forget. He is not human but merely looks human”. Kal-El the Kryptonian-American represents the best in our human society, hence the tagline, “Truth, justice, and the American way.” As an immigrant to North America, I find myself relating to Superman in many ways and that connection is the motivation behind this work of art.
