Street artist Pejac has flown to the middle east and has been leaving his mark Jordan. His first project included four interventions in Al-Hussein, a Palestinian refugee camp in Amman, Jordan. Where he scratched away at the building surface to reveal real moments felt by the refugees who have set up home there. These can be found here.
His second project has seen him at the Al-Azraq refugee camp where over 30.000 Syrians live and 200 more arrive each day. Over half of its population are children, and a third of them live only with their mother as the head of the family. Pejac named these artworks ‘ Mothers Artists’ and dedicates them to the single mothers living in the camps.
In Pejacs creative and poetic manner the mother and child silhouette are compared to one in a painting by Spanish post impressionist Sorolla in the early 1900’s Playa de Valencia a la luz de la Mañana (Valencia Beach in the morning light).
”A mother’s creativity is something truly admirable – how they manage to create a special world to protect their child by transforming reality into a better place,” Pejac
Another beautiful project by Pejac in Jordan acknowledging the women who are bringing up their children in these conditions.
This project was made in collaboration with the Spanish embassy in Amman.
