The Meaning Behind Pejac’s ‘YIN-YANG Diptych’ – Explained

Pejac’s Yin-Yang diptych print features one of his most popular drawings from his Paris show, recreated on a larger scale. The artwork is a powerful representation of the artist’s recurring themes of global warming and climate change.

The artwork portrays an Inuit man fishing through a hole in thick ice, symbolising the fragility of the environment and the adaptability of humans. Pejac has created a “before and after” storyline with this piece, reversing the image’s content and placing the subject on a solitary block of ice floating on water. This transformation highlights the extent of the crisis humanity is facing and transforms the relationship between the key elements into the structure of a universally recognised symbol for eternal balance.

Yin-Yang is a powerful work of art that speaks to the urgent need for action on climate change. The print is not only visually stunning but also carries a strong message relevant to our planet’s current state.

Pejac collaborated with Avant Arte to raise awareness and funds for NGOs working on this matter. Avant Arte pre-released an edition of 10 hand-embellished impressions, with 75% of the proceeds going to Save the Med, an NGO working with Mediterranean marine ecosystems. One day later, on July 3rd at 6 pm (CEST), Pejac offered the official edition’s 90 examples of the diptych through his website. Pejac’s Yin-Yang diptych print ‘Special Edition’ is out of 30.
