When talking about Pejac, the key terms are “message” and “adaption”.
No matter if he works on paper, canvas or in public, he has tremendous ability to adapt his work in order to pass a clear and powerful message. Whether drawing a map of the world draining into a sewer or painting a chilling take on iconic photograph of Buddhist monk burning himself, his art is provocative and critical, capable of stopping the observer in his tracks. In order to achieve such effect, he is using different visual languages, reaching for unconventional tools, or finding alternative ways to present the finished work.
From miniature window drawings, striking site-specific interventions to elaborate replicas of classic masterpieces, Pejac is rightfully recruiting an army of fans and collectors with every new piece he makes. Taking clever twists on familiar images and skillfully reinventing the public space, Barcelona-based artist is touching sensitive social and environmental issues in a smart and poetic manner. The strength of his work and universal language comes from the right combination of admirable painting skills, original and effective concepts, and vast knowledge of classic art and popular culture.
