Willem's satirical drawings on art.
The satirical cartoonist Willem, regular illustrator at Charlie Hebdo and Libération, but also at Beaux-Art Magazine, is a prolific drawer. He proposes, in his book Les Emmerdeurs (the hecklers), scathing and cynical, but also realistic, portraits of fifteen international artists, from Salvador Dalí to Tracey Emin, from Otto Dix to Jacques Villeglé. With his usual mordant glaze which earned him the Prix de l'Humour Noir, in 1996, this Dutch artist catches with virtuosity comical paradoxes, hypocrisy, opportunism and love of money which are common in the art circles. This is fierce and humorous, mixing comics and short stories about his personal artistic experience.
