"I prefer to speak with a soft voice," Pejac stated in one of his rare interviews, metaphorically describing his poetic approach to creating subtle yet impactful studio pieces and urban interventions. "When people speak with a soft voice, others draw closer to listen." This simple yet undeniable truth thoroughly explains the irresistible appeal and the effect of the Madrid-based artist's oeuvre while revealing his ability to summarise any subject to a preciously whimsical metaphor.
Working in various mediums, Pejac is known for his recreations of classic masterpieces, like the installation Don't Look Back in Anger (2016), which features a rendition of van Gogh's Starry Night (1889) carved by key into the hood of Jaguar. Although he graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, Pejac is a fierce proponent of street art who believes art should be accessible to all. His works can be found in Paris, London, Milan, Moscow, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Tokyo, and the United States.
Pejac is very particular when choosing the right place, context, and medium or tools for a specific message. This is why he decided on the alleys of Istanbul to create trompe l'oeil window pieces; the bustling streets of Bushwick, New York, for a fossil trompe l'oeil; London's light posts for gravity-defying shoes; Tokyo for a miraculous appearance of shark fin on the sidewalk; Amman for the poignant materialisation of people's memories on the weathered walls of the Jabad Al-Weibdeh refugee camp; or Moscow for My Only Flag, depicting a child raising a flag made of branches.
In his studio practice, Pejac uses his fine art education to experiment with various techniques, continuously searching for the one that best conveys the desired atmosphere of his vision and concepts. Working with everything from oils and watercolour, over charcoal and pencil, to scarping, burning, stencilling, and spraypainting, but no stranger to sculpture or installation, the artist sees his practice "more like a marathon than a sprint while valuing the importance of the route".
