These large-scale street art pieces rock. They are by Alexandros Vasmoulakis, who states that his main purpose is to communicate with others. Well, these pieces certainly do that--they're massive!

What surprises me is that even on this large scale, Alexandros Vasmoulakis' imagery still manages to appear delicate and detailed. Intricacies such as the curls in the hair go a long way to achieve this.

Implications - ** Companies always think about how their ads can stand out. What does this trend suggest they do?

In urban environments street art ceases to stand out because of the sheer volume of it. By introducing a novel element, this piece cuts away from the pack and demands to be noticed. When creating ad campaigns, companies should think about how their ads will fit into the environment and how they can stand out.
