Enrique Chagoya(Mexico City, Mexico, 1953 - )
Escape from Fantasylandia: An Illegal Aliens Survival Guide, 2011
Lithograph and gold metallic powder on paper
9 1/2 x 80 in. (24.13 x 203.2 cm)
The artist describes this print: "In this codex I have made multiple self-portraits as male and female ethnic stereotypes portraying African, European, Mexican, Brazilian, Asian, and Middle Eastern characters. I use the imagery in the portraits with my own face to show that under any ethnic stereotype is an individual and that we are all from the same species. I do this with some sense of humor but without trivializing the seriousness of the subject.
I recently had my DNA ancestry researched and I learned that I have genes from Native American (from Central Mexico), European, Ashkenazi, Middle Eastern, North African, Sub Sahara African and East and South Asian ancestors. This may be a partial self-portrait of my genetic makeup within my DNA."
