Usually, his characters include one or several men who don’t represent the classical nude model. With the characteristic rolls of fat, long noses, bald heads or modest penises, his subjects confront us with a contented smile. Unembarrassed by their unfashionable looks, they are portrayed as proud of their bodies — enjoying in the authoritative status imparted to them by the artist use of larger-than-life scale.
