Stroke.03 Art Fair – Chor Boogie, Best Ever, Roa, and Alexandros Vasmoulakis

Art Focus: Alexandros Vasmoulakis

AM is a big fan of Alexandros Vasmoulakis. Although he currently resides in Berlin, the young Greek artist dominates the urban skyline of his hometown Athens with enormous murals on the city’s high rise buildings. We love the blend of street and pop surrealist qualities in Alexandros’ work and his sharp use of color to create a sensation of movement. The scale on which he works and his ability to incorporate his pieces into their environment is very impressive.
