Installation / Videos: Pejac – “Heavy Sea”

We’ve seen Pejac paint large indoor murals, small street pieces, window drawings, install sculptural works in public, create visual illusions on facades and walls, but we never seen him turn his paintings into reality. Until now. The Spanish artist just shared his latest project, Heavy Sea, titled after his watercolor painting from a few years ago depicting a lifesaving ring on top a tire dump. Recently, he came across a location that looked pretty much exactly like the one he drew, so he decided to re-create the image in […]

Upcoming: Pejac (London Solo Show)

We don’t get to see often enough artists who produce striking and clever street works who have equally effective if not stronger studio pieces. If you liked the street pieces that Spanish artist Pejac has been creating around the globe, you’ll surely enjoy the latest series of works he’s been creating for his upcoming London show. Still playing his cards close to his chest, the Barcelona-based artists didn’t reveal the time or location of the show yet, but the body of work he’s been working on looks promising. […]

Releases: Pejac – “Meadow” Print

After his recent Asian tour that included Hong Kong (covered), Seoul (covered) and Tokyo (covered), Pejac returned to his studio in Barcelona to work on his next limited edition release. The image he chose for this release is a black and white version of his large canvas, Meadow,  that he painted earlier this week. Depicting a startled lonely deer in a meadow made of arrows, it is a nice example of his simple visual language that carries a deeper, more complex message. While plain at first, the […]

Streets: Pejac (Tokyo)

After stopping in Hong Kong (covered) and Seoul (covered), Pejac finished his Asian tour with the most anticipated part of his trip – Tokyo. In his previous works, the Spanish artist has often used elements from Japanese culture, so it was very interesting to see how the land of the cherry blossom, samurais, etc will inspire him. While mostly focusing on paying respect to their tradition and rich culture, some of the works he created pointed out some negative aspects of modern Japan. During his stay in the Japanese capital, Pejac […]

Streets: Pejac (Seoul)

After recently visiting Hong Kong (covered), Pejac recently stopped in Seoul while continuing his Asian tour. Seeing as this was his first time in the country, the Spanish artist used this opportunity to leave his mark around the South Korean capital. Armed with only a brush and a cup of paint, he created some more window works in his hotel room, as well as two street pieces influenced by the land and culture he’s in. Icarus is an image Pejac introduced a while ago in the form of […]

Streets: Pejac (Hong Kong)

We just received these photos of new works by Pejac created few days ago in Hong Kong. The artist who is known for his witty concepts recently spent a few days in a former British colony leaving several diverse works throughout the city. Tackling the problems of overpopulation and limited rights, the “Umbrella Revolution” as well as Chinese tradition, most of the works were very small in scale but large in their message. This once again shows the strength of public art in it’s most basic form. Re-thinker […]

Streets: Pejac (Santander)

After a few quiet months interrupted with occasional drawings shared through his Facebook page, Pejac is back with another street piece in his hometown of Santander entitled New Order. As the title indicates, the mural symbolizes a different setup or view of things, or a drastic change that can bring brighter future. Staying true to his recognizable technique and approach, the Spanish artist created another striking original work using some of his recurring imagery. With minimal intervention on the wall, he created an effective illusion of […]

Je Suis Charlie

With the world’s attention on Paris after the tragic events that unfolded today, artists around the world have shown their solidarity with the French people by doing what they do best – making art. Inspired by the phrase “Je Suis Charlie” or “I Am Charlie,” creatives like Hanksy above have shown their support for freedom of expression with “cartoons” of their own. Take a look at a small sampling below…                               […]

Releases: Pejac – “Heavy Sea” print

Shortly after finishing his recent indoor mural in London (covered), Pejac went back to studio to add final touches to his upcoming print release. Six months since his successful, fully sold out print debut “Sepukku” (covered), Spanish artist is releasing a new screen print titled “Heavy Sea”. Based on one of his paintings created in 2012, the strong image is showing a massive pile of car tires with one lonely red safety ring among them. In his signature style, the artist is using a smart, simple image to […]

We recently received these exclusive shots of Pejac working on an indoor mural in London. Titled Entelequia (entelechy), this beautiful symbolic piece was commissioned by the Sushisamba restaurant for their Heron Tower private entrance. the new image mixes elements of his previous work – cherry blossom flowers from his recent image and sold out print release Sepukku (covered), with a girl on a swing, one of the images he used to paint on windows. The finished large piece features a girl sitting on a swing that is tied to itself, […]
