Pejac: New Street Pieces - Paris, France

on Facebook

Pejac recently spent some time in Paris, France where he worked his way through a couple of new street pieces including the above piece which is entitled “Ants”.
With his minimalist but clear style, he painted 2 silhouettes of kids being cruel with magnifying glass on what looks like colony of ants. But, instead of burning ants which is always an interesting game to play, these kids are burning little humans. The artist used the texture of raw concrete wall, and painted these little men to look as a realistic colony of ants. Juxtaposed with flat silhouettes of children, the tiny creatures shown with their shadows and in perspective, look very fragile and harmless. The Spanish artist also painted two extra pieces including a surrealistic and amazing door.
Check out more photos of the new pieces after the jump and come back soon for more mural updates from Pejac. This piece can be seen in person @ Avenue de 8 Mai 1945, Vitry-sur-Seine, Paris.

Antoine Cordet Paintings

Artist on Tumblr, Saatchi Art

A striking feature of Antoine Cordet’s body of work is that nearly all of his subjects are male. In an image culture where the bare, female body is used as a story-telling medium in everything from art to advertising, this aspect of Cordet’s work is refreshing. The Parisian painter’s artworks resemble discarded party polaroids that have taken a serious beating. Snapshot-like portraits of dejected youths, the paintings spell out agony and confusion with muddled brushstrokes and dripping paint splatters — like a visualization of a secret quickly whispered in passing. See more of Cordet’s paintings below.

Dessi Terzieva is a Detroit-based 22-year-old law student who “maintains her sanity through her art”. So in between her Civil Procedure and Constitutional Law classes, she whips out these beautiful, thoughtfully-constructed collages.

In the process of cutting pictures from old books and magazines, I get to know my characters and their story, ultimately to make them my own

By giving them a new reality, they give me a voice. Each collage is the equivalent of a diary entry. I am speaking to you and others, telling you how I feel, what I think, what I crave, and what I despise via
