A Solo Exhibition by Alexandros Vasmoulakis

Los Angeles, CA - 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, as he has painted on and embellished various buildings across the city of Athens, Greece and is expected to do the same here in Los Angeles. While recognized for his street work, Vasmoulakisʼ paintings are beginning to reflect the maturity of his work as an artist.

His worksʼ main theme is the psychology of his figures. The struggle, the element of the conflict dominates in the pairs of his figures and 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, of an expressive soul searcher.

Alexandrosʼ work is predominantly character based and these creations explore the core values of human nature such as love, desire, seduction and hate. His work is very much driven by his state of mind and will reflect the mood of any given day. He uses mixed media including both collage and paint to convey the relationships between these emotions
