Pejac visits Asia

Spanish artist Pejac took a recent trip to Asia and left created a string of new artwork along the way. In Hong Kong, Pejac created “Tagger”, a painting of a dragon who itself drew a heart using flames. Pelac used a flamethrower to draw the heart. The piece is meant to give this mythical creature a humanistic side.

In Seoul, Korea, Pejac painted “Icarus”, a paper plane which has been shot down. The painting is a reference to the country’s precarious current political state. Another piece he created spontaneously is “Oxymoron”, where he drew curtains on an old iron door seemingly draped using the door lock.

Integrating famous icons and symbols such as an act of ritual suicide, a bonsai tree, and Hokuasai’s famous “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa”. A sculptural piece of shark fins being bitten into is a commentary about the problem of overfishing in Japan.  [h/t juxtapoz.com]
