Serée lives and works in Nice, where in 1992 he created his studio called Atelier Gestes et Traces. He moved to Nice in 1969, and started his studies at Villa Arson in 1970, following the teaching of Daniel Dezeuze.[3][non-primary source needed]

His encounter with Pablo Picasso in 1969, would leave a strong mark to continue his career,[4][failed verification] for which he said "he marked me in a definitive way and nourished me with his creative energy". In 2018 he was part of a collective exhibition on Picasso in Vence.[5][non-primary source needed]

Aside from paintings, Serée has produced over 100 artist' books and over 700 engravings in collaboration with 47 authors, poets and writers such as Marie-Claire Bancquart, Bernard Noël, Michel Butor and Daniel Biga. His work is currently present in many collections, with Musée d'art moderne et d'art contemporain,[6] Picasso Museum in Antibes,[citation needed] Museum Paul Valéry Sète,[citation needed] Museum Petit Bonson Museum,[citation needed] Paribas de Paris Foundation[citation needed] being among others.[7][non-primary source needed][8][better source needed] He is sometimes associated with the work of other artists from the École de Nice [fr] such as Jean-Louis Cantin, Jean-Jacques Condom, Daniel Farioli, Alberte Garibbo, Nivèse, and Bernard Tréal.[9]
