Streets: Pejac (London)

Borrowing a title from the iconic British band Oasis, Don’t Look Back in Anger is a recreation of Van Gogh’s Starry Night scratched with car keys on a hood of a black Jaguar. Mixing vandalism and fine […]

Recently during the Rock Werchter Festival of Belgium, Deih was invited to paint some stacked metal storage containers for the North West Walls event. Working well with the unique painting surface, the Spanish street artist chose to create some of his signature otherworldly comic-inspired imagery with an upside down character. He further explains his piece – “We, humans, only can watch at Cosmos’ face trapped by our limit´s perception. We will follow trying to understand it although I think we are not able to think […]
