“In I’m With the Banned, Sheldon raises awareness about injustices occurring throughout America. He sees this year’s election season as a grotesque perversion of American equality. As a white man, he says, he embraces his identity and the innate privilege associated with it, and he hopes that as an ally, his work can enlighten these perversions.”                                                       Miami New Times

Humanity’s greatest calamities stem from false narratives swallowed as gospel by the masses: slavery, genocide, out-of-control gun violence, voter suppression. A home cannot thrive when liars are allowed to continually lie without consequence. Neither can a nation. In this war for fairness and truth my weapons are artworks, aimed at the hearts and minds of the gullible and the shameless, lying, mean-spirited people who feel objectivity is something they get to modulate.
