I found this picture (from an exhibition in Brussels) in the newspaper this morning.
Gilles Barbier is a versatile French artist with a keen sense of derision.
There is a French proverb saying: “Mieux vaut une tete bien faite qu’une tete bien pleine” (better a well organized head than a filled head). This character has overridden his limits.

Gilles Barbier (Vanuatu 1965, French,lives in Marseille), ‘Squeezedhead’ 2010. Exhibition Twig Gallery, Brussels.
Illustration for an article of Claude Lorent, in ‘La Libre Belgique’,’Arts Libre’ 59,p.3
