Currently touring around East Asia, Spanish artist Pejac recently stopped in Seoul and left couple of recognizable pieces. Working in an environment that is not common on the street art maps, the artist used this opportunity well to create couple of striking signature illusions.
“Icarus” is a simple piece that is showing a shot down paper plane, burning as it falls to the ground. Through well measured painting intervention and clever placement, the artist created this striking piece that is a metaphor for a delicate political reality in the region. The 2nd piece “Oxymoron” was improvised on the spot, and is a great example of Pejac’s creativity and talent – painting on old iron door, using only black paint he created an illusion of a semi open curtain that is closed by a real metallic lock. This mix of reality Vs imagination comes even more obvious on two window drawings he did in his hotel room, showing a young girl on top of the highest mainmast, sailing into her imagination, as well as a helicopter carrying the sun around the earth. Aside from their visual appearance, all the works carry strong meaning and message which makes them even more special.
