Alexandros Vasmoulakis is mostly known by his work that has dominated the streets of Athens. He has beautified and embellished various buildings of the city with massive scale murals and paintings. Inculcated with the principals of ironic-metaphoric language, Vasmoulakis in his present work uses oppositions to elucidate ambiguities and to emphasize crystal clear signs to puzzle. Like an artistic roamer he defies the borderlines between painting, drawing, street art, and installation. By unfolding the first steps of each piece in its final form, prompted by an instinctive disgust of secretiveness, Vasmoulakis uses the negative space in his work as a way to open up the painting.
