You say Potato, I say SCARY ASS POTATO!
Created by Beirut based Lebanese artist/potato abuser Ginou Choueiri
I chose the potato to portray human faces because of the many striking parallels. Not only is their skin porous like ours, but their skin texture and color is very similar, and like us, they come in different sizes, shapes and forms. Potatoes grow, live, and then decay, mirroring the ephemeral existence and fragility of our own human nature.
Cant say i noticed the “striking parallels” between potatoes and human faces myself (except maybe Karl Pilkington) but now that you mention it…
