Drawing inspiration from cartoons, nature, candy and video games, Ser’s work (a curiously eclectic blend of graffiti, comic culture and pop surrealism) employs an arsenal of monstrous but somewhat benign characters through glimpses and images of a bizarre parallel universe. Ser’s work is all over Greece, in the form of large-scale murals, paintings placed in important collections and commercial work, created in association with major local and international brands.[2]

Argiris Ser was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. He studied graphic design and comics. Argiris became involved with street art in 1993, when he started to make graffiti.[3]

Argiris Ser work can be found all around Greece but also in countries like U.K., France, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Cyprus and more, as he has been travelling around, participating in various mural projects and exhibitions.[4]
