Alexandros Vasmoulakis: The A’s To Our Q’s


Age: 28
Hometown: Athens
Where do you now live?: Berlin
Where would you most like to live?: Here I am fine
Who was your first “hero” in life?: Michael Jackson.
What is your favorite thing to do on your day off from work?: Cycling.
What is your favorite color?: Always changing
Who (or what) do you love?: My love!


Wooster: Who and/or what are some of your influences?

Alexandros: Talking with people and listening to bizarre personal stories. My work is first of all human-based and I am interested in realizing deeper how weird creatures we are.

Wooster: What other artists do you most admire?

Alexandros: Theo Jansen is by far my favourite one. I think that the great art has to include numerous approaches to the main aspects of life. Jansen does it perfectly!

Wooster: How would you describe your art to someone who could not see it?

Alexandros: That’s a bit awkward! I would say that through my work I try to investigate our troubling nature. And even if this investigation can never conclude it is interesting to see how far it can go.

Wooster: What other talent would most like to have?

Alexandros: Music composition! What I like is that music touches and moves deeply a really wider audience than visual art does. Of course that’s the point!

Wooster: What do you fear the most?

Alexandros: Losing the ability to do what I want. Secondly to lose my passion for that.

Wooster: What is your greatest ambition?

Alexandros: Still searching..

(A note from Wooster:  Be sure to watch the video of Theo Jansen above from the TED conference. It’s amazing)
