Pejac’s new artwork that describes Madrid

Carabanchel, a working-class district in the south of the Spanish capital, is the most densely populated district in the city and as crowded as Pejac’s works, and it is on the walls of Carabanchel that he has created his latest work.
The wall chosen by the Spanish artist is one of the city’s new artistic symbols, the side wall of the VETA Gallery, the city’s largest contemporary art exhibition space. In all Pejac’s works it is very important to choose the right place, the right context, the right medium or the right tools for a given message, and so the intervention at VETA follows this line of coherent narrative.

We left Pejac with an exhibition in Berlin at the end of 2021, now the artist is back outdoors, working on the imperfections of buildings, which are enhanced by tiny details that are confusing at first glance, but rich in detail and with a clear narrative if you look closely.
Between the cracks and marks of peeling walls live tiny characters casting long shadows, rendered with small touches of colour. The message is that every apparent impression is relative, hence the name of the work “Everything is Relative“.
The subjects painted by Pejac seem to take care of the ruined walls, transporting their imperfections with a sense of collective collaboration, all representing the soul of the neighbourhood and its inhabitants, whom the artist personally thanked in an Instagram post.
