The first US solo exhibition from Greek artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis is taking place at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles opening on the 20th March. In this highly anticipated solo project, entitled ‘Is Everybody Happy’, 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. His title takes a sarcastic dig by using his disproportional faces as tools to portray the revolt and individual agitations one may have within society today he also plays with scale and composition to get his message across.
This following example describes the emotional pressure and agnst in his works; ‘The collage-like women stare insistently towards the spectator, carrying these uncanny shiny smiles that express derision and irony in conjunction with confusion and anxiety’.
‘Is Everybody Happy’ exhibition from Alexandros Vasmoulakis starts on 20th March 2010 and runs through until 17th April 2010 at LeBasse Projects, 6023 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA.
