Biography

Pejac, born Silvestre Santiago in 1977 in Santander, Cantabria, Spain, is a renowned contemporary artist known for his thought-provoking street art and studio works. He studied Fine Arts in Salamanca and Barcelona before attending the Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano in 2001. Pejac began his street art career as a reaction against the elitism he encountered in the academic art world.

Pejac's work often addresses socio-economic issues, including environmental concerns, freedom, and political topics. His style is marked by the use of minimalist, often monochromatic imagery with occasional splashes of color, and he frequently employs techniques such as trompe-l'oeil to create visually striking pieces that engage with their surroundings in unique ways.

His art can be seen in cities around the world, including Paris, London, Milan, Moscow, Hong Kong, Istanbul, and New York. Notable projects include his "Waterline" exhibition on a péniche boat in Paris and his interventions in the Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan. His public artworks are known for their poetic simplicity and the ability to transform mundane urban spaces into sites of reflection and wonder.

Pejac's first solo exhibition, "Oximoron," took place in 2010 in Salamanca, and he has since held major shows in London and other cities, gaining international acclaim for his innovative approach to street art and fine art.
