Graphic designer and artist Christos Tzaferos, also known as Simek and the one half of the Greek duo Blaqk, has been dropping a series of new pieces in the streets of Athens during the last weeks.
Born in 1985 in Greece, SIMEK has been experimenting with graffiti & street art since the beginning of 2000. He studied Graphic Design at the School of Graphic Design in Athens, taking up painting and photography around 2009 while working as a freelance graphic designer. SIMEK’s creativity stems from modern & traditional architecture, and his work is characterised by a geometric abstract style that incorporates the architecture and graphic elements surrounding his pieces.  What do you think?
