Streets: Pejac (Istanbul)

Spanish artist Pejac (introduced) was recently in Istanbul where he created a triptych of pieces in Uskudar, the Asian part of Istanbul. The idea was to create an “eye trap” that will emphasize the strength and the illusion of the works by creating a sort of physical bond between them. Titled Lock, Poster and Shutters, the works where made between October 5th to 10th, using acrylic, sand paper and graphite. These signature artistic tools when modifying the given surface and creating such mirages. Always being focused on the urban context of his […]

Recently, street muralist Pejac (Art Focus) painted at a unique location just off the the shores of Canabria in northern Spain. Paying tribute to a famous Monet painting, Impression, Sunrise, the locally based artist recreated the image on the barnacled hull of an old ship.

Streets: Pejac (Paris)

Pejac (introduced) recently visited Paris and left a several new pieces scattered around the city.

The first piece is called Exit to Surrealism, and it’s a nice […]

Streets: Pejac (Spain)

Spanish artist Pejac (featured), recently created this fantastic new outdoor piece in his hometown of Santander in Spain. More of an intervention than just a painting, this piece is called Wallcanvas and was created as a tribute to Lucio Fontana and his cut-off paintings.  In the same manner that the infamous Italian artist was creating cuts in canvases, giving the material a mysterious sense of illusion and depth, the creative Barcelona-based street artist did something similar with the rough concrete wall. In order to achieve the full effect of […]
