                        THE EQUALITY BETWEEN PEOPLE IS THE CONCEPT OF ETIENNE ETNIK SERIES, CONSISTING OF 11 PIECES: AN AVATAR AND 10 REPRESENTATIVES OF DIFFERENT NATIONS, WHICH ARE NOT ONLY PORTRAITS, BUT CAUGHT IN A PRECISE MOMENT OR PLACE TO EXPRESS MORE "SUBCONCEPT" SO WE HAVE:
[01] A BRAZILIAN WHO AVENGES RAINFOREST KILLING THE LOGGERS,
[02] A MANHATTAN GUY WHO LOOKS IMPASSIVE A TERRORIST ATTACK,
[03] AN IRAQI GUY POSING DURING THE EXPLOSION OF HIS HOUSE,
[04] GAY COWBOY WITH CACTUS AS A PHALLIC SYMBOL,
[05] AN ENGLISH GUY ON LADY D MEMORIAL WITH GRAFFITI DEDICATED TO QUEEN,
[06] SELFPORTRAIT FROM ANCIENT GREECE,
[07] A RUSSIAN, WHICH BEDROOM SEEMS AN ARMORY,
[08] AN ITALIAN, A FAITHFUL LOVER OF RELIGION AND POPE,
[09] A UKRAINIAN WITNESS OF THE CHERNOBYL DISASTER,
[10] AN ELEGANT GERMAN MASTER,
[11] MY AVATAR, WHERE THE REAL FACE IS HIDDEN.
FOR THIS PROJECT I CARRIED OUT A MASSIVE WEB SEARCH, BROWSING ON THE INTERNET HUNDREDS OF PORTRAITS OF MEN FROM AROUND THE WORLD, I STUDIED THE ORIGINAL FEATURES AND PHYSICAL FEATURES OF EACH ETHNIC GROUP, CAPTURING THE SALIENT POINTS AND REPRODUCING THEM ON MYSELF, SHAPING MY FACE ON THESE APPEARANCES.
I WANT TO FEEL A PART OF EVERYONE, DO NOT FEEL ANY DIFFERENCE WITH PEOPLE OTHER THAN ME, BUT KEEP RECOGNIZABLE AT THE SAME TIME.
