Stellar new work by Alexandros Vasmoulakis for his new show, "Is Everybody Happy?" opening this weekend at LeBasse Projects.
From the Press Release:
LeBasse Projects is excited to present, 'Is Everybody Happy?,' the first US solo exhibition from Greek artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis. In this anticipated solo project, Vasmoulakis brings his first major body of work to the US after becoming recognized across Europe for his work both on the streets and in galleries.
Vasmoulakis is mostly known by his work in the streets of Athens, Greece as he has painted on and embellished various buildings across the city and is expected to do the same here in Los Angeles. While recognized for his street work, Vasmoulakis' paintings are beginning to reflect the maturity of his work as an artist.
His works' main theme is the psychology of his figures - the struggle and the element of conflict dominates in the pairs of his figures as well as in each character separately. With the perceptive analysis of his characters Vasmoulakis achieves through his work he persuades us that he has penetrated into their mentality by holding a role of a competent and gifted anatomist and of an expressive soul searcher.
'Is Everybody Happy' will be Vasmoulakis' first US solo exhibition.
