Urban Greek

Having a large influence in Urban Art, Stamatis Laskos painted these eye catching iconic, character designs on various sizes of canvases to massive wall murals. Stamatis is from Greece, where he studied painting at Athens School of Fine Arts. His collection of work includes humorous, exaggerated body and facial forms to daunting white eyed characters. According to Stamatis, he calls it "satyrical postmodern Byzantine iconography."
