Potatohead People

To Lebanese artist Ginou Choueir, potatoes are a lot like humans. Each potato has a distinct personality which he reveals by painting portraits on them. He's painted hundreds of them. Why potatoes?

"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."
