There are a bazillion holiday gift guides floating around, with ideas ranging from groovy home decor, to zen toiletries, inspiring notebooks, gourmet kitchen ware, exotic food items, bohemian accessories, and vintage toys. There’s something for every age and personality! But sometimes, it all really starts to look the same, and these days, we have so much clutter in our drawers, shelves, and tabletops, there’s the danger your gift will wind up at a yard sale.

Why not consider something to spice up your loved one’s wall? Maybe you’re really tired of seeing that painting of a cottage glowing in the woods at your parents’ house, or as much as we all love Diego Rivera, there’s only so much of the Flower Seller you can stand to look at when you visit your sister. It’s time for something new and more contemporary! Something to really get the house guests talking.

Serie Project, having produced screen prints over the last two decades, also has fine art serigraphs for every personality (we’ll leave the age part at your discretion). By purchasing one of our serigraphs, you are also supporting a non-profit organization and our community of artists. Below is a selection of prints we’ve picked for the person in your life who loves a variety of things, from nature, to hearts, to cereal.

To view more information or to purchase prints, click on the serigraph title of your choice!

Science Guru – everyone knows that ultra-braniac who can make sense of chemistry, biology, and physics, while most of us can barely figure out how to turn quarts into pints for a cooking recipe. These prints are inspired by science. (left) Jessica Halonen, Target 20 (Suture), 2012; (right) Rosane Volchan O’Conor, Dois mil e dose linhas e pontos, 2011.

It’s the End of the World! – We all know those friends or family members who, no matter what scientific evidence points to the opposite, are still convinced the world is going to end on December 21, 2012.

Car Aficionado – Do you know someone who just loves to have the latest model car? Or maybe someone who is mechanically minded and likes to tinker on cars? Perhaps you know someone who really needs a car and has been bumming rides off you for too long; for now, you can at least give them a screen print of a car. (left) Francisco Delgado, Catharsis I, 2004; (right) Paul Sierra, Red Toyota, 2010


Aquaphiles – There’s always that one person who was born to swim and loves being in the water. Even if you don’t know a fanatic swimmer, mermaids are always enchanting and delightful. (left) Alma Lopez, El Vals de Las Mariposas, 2008; (right) Anabelle Rodriguez, Siren’s Song, 2004


Cereal Isn’t Always What’s for Breakfast – Who doesn’t love good-old fashioned crunchy sweet cereal with milk, or a big bowl of menudo? How about breakfast taco cereal? (left) Maria Natividad, Menudo: Breakfast of Champions, 2010; (right) Matthew Rodriguez, In the Second Grade…, 2007
