Ferhat Mehenni

Hey guys
Here are some images of my latest personal project. This was a study based on a photograph to practice sculpting life-like face, facial expressions, emotion, and clothes
All sculpted, modelled and rendered in Zbrush, some renders on Keyshot and also used Photoshop

This is a 3d sculpt of Ferhat Mehenni, also known as Ferhat Imazighen Imoula, a singer, a political activist, human right activist, a secular activist, and the president of the movement for the Auto-determination of Kabylia (MAK).

Born in 5 March 1953 in Illoula Oumalou, Tizi Ouzou Province, Having graduated from the University of Algiers with a degree in political science, Mehenni made his first steps into the world of music in 1973 by winning the Algiers Modern Music Festival's first prize.

He has been a Laureate of the Gusi Peace Prize since 23 July 2013.

In 2012, Mehenni assumed a controversial position by visiting Israel where he voiced his support for and solidarity with Israel, comparing it to Kabylia: "We are in a hostile environment. Both countries share kind of the same path, but Israel already exists – that’s the only difference.

Mehenni earned a degree in political science before embarking on a musical career in 1973, and then he quickly acquired a reputation as a protest singer. He was arrested thirteen times, imprisoned for three years, and tortured by government operatives.

Mehenni founded the Movement for the Autonomy of Kabylie and has served as president of the Provisional Government of Kabylie from exile in France since the “Black Spring” period in 2001, during which the Kabylian people challenged the Algerian government’s ban on their culture and language.
