ABOUT THE ART

Love Letter is a time-limited release by renowned artist Pejac. This unique release is continuing the artist's exploration of mediums as well as ways of producing and distributing his work to collectors. After a series of instantly sold out and highly sought-after prints and sculptures, the artist decided to produce an accessible time-limited edition, allowing everyone to purchase a hand-made artwork while keeping the unprecedented quality standards. 

For this occasion, Pejac reached back towards the imagery from some of his earliest works - the glass drawings he used to do create on his student day apartment window. With a similar concept in mind, the artist saw the back of a traditional envelope as a pre-made background for an elegant intervention depicting a tightrope walker in the middle of his breathtaking performance. Working with a common object that stands for romantic, almost forgotten form of communication, the artist managed to make a poetic connection between the uncertainty of balancing on a tightrope and waiting for a written letter. 

On a technical level, the multiple is continuing Pejac's tradition of producing high-end editions using a fully personalized, hands-on painstaking process. From creating a custom envelope from high-quality Paper Arches 250 gr paper, using different methods of printing for the front and the back, creating spacers that ensure the right distance of the top flap, making custom postal stamps which complete the look of this delicate semi-sculptural piece, all the way to designing magnetized display mounting board and protective packaging.

Finally, Pejac will be offering the original Love Letter piece after the edition release, with all the proceeds from that sale going to Clowns Without Borders, an international organization dedicated to bringing smiles to places where they are most needed. By purchasing an original work the collectors will have a chance to directly help children with trauma to experience the social, emotional, physical and cognitive benefits of laughter and humor.

ARTIST BIO

From miniature window drawings, striking site-specific interventions to elaborate replicas of classic masterpieces, Pejac is rightfully recruiting an army of fans and collectors with every new piece he makes. Taking clever twists on familiar images and skillfully reinventing the public space, Barcelona-based artist is touching sensitive social and environmental issues in a smart and poetic manner. The strength of his work and universal language comes from the right combination of admirable painting skills, original and effective concepts, and vast knowledge of classic art and popular culture.

When talking about Pejac, the key terms are "message" and "adaption". No matter if he works on paper, canvas or in public, he has tremendous ability to adapt his work in order to pass a clear and powerful message. Whether drawing a map of the world draining into a sewer or painting a chilling take on iconic photograph of Buddhist monk burning himself, his art is provocative and critical, capable of stopping the observer in his tracks. In order to achieve such effect, he is using different visual languages, reaching for unconventional tools, or finding alternative ways to present the finished work.

Though truly skilled and capable of making remakes of classic masterpieces by Claude Monet, Eugène Delacroix, Katsushika Hokusai, or references to Lucio Fontana or Alberto Giacometti, Pejac feels comfortable minimizing his work to bare silhouettes or shadows when needed. The ability to touch different subjects and use vast range of different mediums, techniques, formats or styles, is what makes his works unique. The fact that he keeps his voice recognizable despite diverse variety of styles and concepts, is surely one of his biggest strengths, rarely seen in the art world.
