Spanish street artist Pejac‘s work (previously) is known for its subtle interaction with urban environments, small interruptions to everyday buildings like bird-shaped cracks created in an abandoned power plant’s windows, or trompe l’oeil paintings scattered through the streets of the district of Uskudar.

Pejac’s newest series brings an urban resource into the studio rather than having the artist travel out. Utilizing pressed wood as a pseduo-canvas, Pejac draws with black ink and pencil to produce soft deer, birds, and flowers in the works’ foregrounds. These natural elements showcase the wooden medium’s origin, highlighting how natural environments are continuously being chopped down and constructed over.

“The beauty of the pressed wood seems to hide the arrogance of man in its relation with nature,” said Pejac. “These panels have some sort of aesthetic warmth but at the same time a sense of devastation, making it very contradictory, which directly refers to my way of understanding art. Expressing myself on thousands of small pieces of wood feels like ‘tattooing’ on the stripped skins of trees. Each drawing in this Redemption series are tribute to nature. Any other subject would have been frivolous.”
