Pejac’s New Pieces in Rijeka, Croatia

pejac-rijeka06

Spanish artist Pejac recently did a 2 weeks residency with the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka, Croatia. During his stay in the city, he created 3 new public works, once again proving his creativity, technical diversity, and ability to visualize these unique concepts.

As per usual with the Barcelona-based artist, all the works created are done with different techniques, using different tools (not necessarily art tools), but still have that visual connection between them. Working with glass cuter, putty knife, iron brush, sand paper, brushes, acrylic and spraypaint, the new pieces include a wide range of recurring imagery such as deer, slingshot, flock of birds, safety ring, etc. Very poetic and easy to read the works carry deeper meanings and both personal and universal stories that Pejac kindly shared with us.

CAMOUFLAGE (Tribute to René Magritte)

“On a surrealistic level I made a call to attention to nature’s survival instinct – flock of birds camouflage as broken windows in order to blend in and disappear to the human eye for the sake of their survival. As a secondary reading I’m playing with a tribute to René Magritte’s birds holding the sky within them.”

BRAIN DRAIN

“A representation of humanity where people can be seen as drifting jellyfishes with complex thinking minds. We are all highly capable minds carrying a subtle hidden dark side capable of inflicting damage to others we cross path with. At the same time it is symbolising the forced exodus of creative minds from the origin places in the search of a better life.”
