A fixture of the early Greek urban art scene, Alexandros Vasmoulakis is a contemporary painter with a background in advertising. His monumental pieces in Athens' prominent areas merge his aesthetic with the city itself. Having undergone a stylistic shift in more recent years towards abstraction, this piece from 2010 represents the work he is best known for. Vasmou adopts a figurative approach, employing enlarged features to evoke a dramatized sense of what human emotions may lie beneath his character's skin. His public work mirrors the paper collages he makes wholly out of newsprint — both are driven by human nature and his state of mind on any given day.
