Joseph Guay is an American fine art painter, sculptor, large scale photographer, and film director. Guay’s visual art focuses on political and social issues. His latest art installation, “The Border Wall”, was constructed completely by hand using only undocumented Mexican labor workers. The structure is made from welded steel, rebar and concrete, 40 feet in length by 16 feet tall, weighing over 40,000 pounds. It is modeled after the proposed $20 billion wall for the Mexico / United States border. The purpose of this installation is to create social awareness around the issues surrounding immigration in the United States.
