Stamatis Laskos, aka Sive, is a young and promising Greek artist who creates from small paintings to large-scaled murals. Between 2002 and 2007 he studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts, and for two years now he’s been working on the streets as well.
In his work we find such themes as the everyday life, communication and religion. For a long period of time, this particular last issue played a central role in his creations. “[Back then] my inner conviction that God is something above religions was trying to find a way of expression through my drawings”, he affirms.
Still according to him, in the last decades Greece’s street art has shown little progress in comparison to other countries abroad. Fortunately it seems to be in good hands now.
