Spanish artist Pejac recently spent couple of days working on his first series of public installations in London. Titled “Downside Up” these 4 sculptural pieces show old pairs of shoes hanging off light posts, only “downside up”.

Once again Pejac showed his ability to catch the passerby’s attention with a subtle twist of reality. In this case, his “hanging” shoes defy gravity in effort to point out the twisted state of the world today, but also, to play with viewers imagination. These fun installations can be found in Redchurch Street, Shacklewell Street and Granby Street in East London (E2), and are done as an introduction for his upcoming London solo exhibition on July 22-31.

 “’You do not have to be an artist or a child to have a different view of reality. This work is for those who are looking to let their imagination drift away with gravity. Or possibly more for all those who have forgotten to do so.” – Pejac

About Sasha Bogojev

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
