Alexandros Vasmoulakis dominates the Athens skyline...

Greek artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis, showing with LBP in 2010, just finished another large scale mural in Athens. No guerilla work here, as the project was commissioned for greek, film director Nikos Perakis.

Perakis is shooting a docu-fiction film which shows the life and the difficulties of young artists today. Vasmoulakis plays himself in the film while working on the mural.

Alexandros tells us:

"...according to the script, this mural is a commission from a big company and the boss is not satisfied at all with my work so a hard conflict between him and me rises. Iit was not too bad to play there, i dare say it was funny..."

While the mural is a commission, the content was left to Alexandros and he was strongly influenced from the wide riots that had taken place in athens in December 2008.

We are looking forward to his show with us, his first in LA and first solo in the US, next year.
