Stamatis Laskos Makes Warped Street Art Portraiture

“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter,” said Oscar Wilde. “It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.” Never has this quote seemed more true than while admiring the street art of Stamatis Laskos, a 29-year old Greek artist who lives and works in Athens.

He creates warped portraits of friends and other everyday people (as well as the occasional animal) through highly stylized depictions that are alive with detail, depth and dimension. Here are a few examples what he’s done over the last few years on the streets of Greece. He’s currently inspiring a group of budding young artists as an art instructor for an elementary school.
