Houman Mortazavi

Houman Mortazavi (b. 1964, Tehran, Iran) is best known for his satirical works, including works that deal with immigration. His well-known "Project Misplaced" is based on the public life of a first generation Iranian immigrant who's attempts to establish a foothold in a new culture and society has led to his demise.
