              Born in 1993, Sergio Sanchez “Serge Serum” is a Mexican self taught artist based between Los Angeles and Berlin. Growing up in Compton allowed Serge to process and express his surroundings with graffiti, a practice he eventually had to give up because of the gang dangers involved in his neighborhood.  It was at this point that Serum began to replace street walls with canvas. Serum combines oil painting, pastels, spray paint and collaged fragments of previous paintings in his elaborate work process. The heavily textured and often violently and obsessively reworked surfaces may reflect fragmented psychological states, emotional struggles and scars. Serum works intuitively, sometimes utilizing his photographs as a reference or drawing from memories in his upbringing in Compton and Mexico.
