NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL (view large image)
Offset Poster. 19 1/2" x 22" inches - $10.00

Originally created in 1988, Vallen's No Human Being is Illegal poster popularized the slogan - "No Human Being is Illegal."

Published as a bilingual street poster in conjunction with a 1988 drive conducted by the Los Angeles based Central American Resource Center (CARECEN), to secure the rights of undocumented Central American war refugees in the U.S. The slogan on the poster became a catchphrase that has since entered the lexicon of today's defenders of immigrant's rights. Vallen republished his poster in August of 2010.

(view large image)

To mark the 2014 observance of Día de los Muertos, Vallen created a suite of twenty monoprints based upon an ancient Aztec glyph representing death. Essentially a printed painting, no two images are alike. The images were painted directly on a sheet of glass in oil paint, and burnished with a wooden spoon; each color was "pulled" separately.
