Managing Partner Michael Wildes is pleased to announce that Wildes & Weinberg P.C. has secured O-1 visa classification on behalf of client Ms. Zoe Sua Kay, based on her extraordinary ability in the arts.
Zoe Sua Kay is an exceptional painter who has received many honors in the United States and abroad for her exciting body of work. A number of articles have been published, and continue to be published, about Ms. Sua Kay and her art in popular mainstream and art-centric publications, hailing her paintings’ exploration of the human body and identity.
Ms. Sua Kay received her Master of Fine Arts at the renowned New York Academy of Art, where she was the recipient of numerous awards, including the Merit Scholarship in her first year as well as the David Schafer Portrait Scholarship in her second year. She was also selected for the Artist-in-Residence program at Shanghai University, a competitive program for which only four students are chosen to participate.
Notably, she is a beneficiary of the Elizabeth Greenshields award, one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a representational artist and highly indicative of her acclaim.
Mr. Wildes is honored to have secured O-1 aisa classification for this spectacular artist, and is excited to see what she does next.
In order to qualify for an O-1 visa which allows individuals of extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, athletics, education or business to live and work in the United States, a foreign national must provide adequate documentation to demonstrate that he/she has sustained national or international acclaim in their field. The individual must provide substantial evidence to prove that he/she meets 3 of the 6 evidence categories defined by statute, as well as a written advisory opinion from a labor union or relevant peer group. The O-1 visa applicant must also show that he/she has an offer of employment in the United States to work in his/her field of expertise (or several offers of employment from multiple sources, along with a third-party Agent to petition on the individual’s behalf and connect him/her to the multiple employers).
