Pejac is the pseudonym of a street artist born and raised in Spain, who started a little bit for fun to make artwork for the streets all over the world. Bothered by the general academic conception that one breathes in the art world, he made known the most intimate part of himself and his personal expression to all those people who cannot or do not want to visit museums.
The world-famous Barcelona-born artist replicates great classical masterpieces in a modern key, but not only that, his minimalist art ranges from miniature drawings to striking site-specific interventions.
Pejac skillfully embellishes public spaces, but with his works, he wants to provide careful reflections on current themes, such as social and environmental issues.
His style has obviously evolved over time, becoming increasingly linear and simple.
He has been compared several times to his famous colleague Banksy, for the way he conceives his artwork, thanks to his great capacity of imagination he is able to create characters and landscapes full of hidden truths for those who know how to go beyond the image.
In order to make a name for himself in the world of street art, Pejac uses only thin brushes and paint instead of the traditional spray, in his murals the colors of the subjects are always marginal, while the black silhouettes are always repeated on a light background.
A completely alternative technique that differentiates him from most street artists, an approach that also applies to his technique, Pejac always tries to go against the tide thanks to his ability to always hide a message, a concept behind his characters that always remain anonymous and elusive as shadows.
