A few weeks back saw Greek Street Artist Ser visit London to paint the iconic Village Underground wall in Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, for the Education Is A Not A Crime campaign which sets to raising awareness of the Iranian Bahai people who are denied the right to higher education by the Iranian government.
A pioneer of the Street Art scene in his native Greece, Ser works with an range of styles ranging from traditional Graffiti, pop culture and surrealism – depicted through his larger than life fantasy character creations and scenes from his fictional fantasy world Porartia home to a whole host of intriguing characters and scenes which are set to such lovely tones focused predominantly around pink and blue colour schemes. His works really do just have such a sense of life and fun as well as a feeling of movement about the flow of his works, truly a pleasure to witness.
This is the third mural on this wall we have seen from the Not A Crime charity, who had a work commissioned on this same wall by Dave the Chimp in January 2016 (covered here) for Education Is Not A Crime as well as a mural by Polish Street Artist Zbiok for the Journalism Is Not A Crime campaign for persecuted journalists in Iran in August 2015. You can view our post on this work (covered here).
