I’m attracted to people who like to fight—not with other people, but with themselves…I want people in my life who know they are broken and have decided every day is another opportunity to redeem it. People who fight with themselves first—not in a shaming, self-destructive way, but in a resilient, grace-filled effort to be transformed into a more loving person.

Pejac (Spain) - Miniature Silhouettes and Optical Illusions

Spanish artist Pejac creates on his window miniature silhouettes in cut paper or acrylic paint. The window is then captured on camera, showing the riskiness and fragility of the art of tightrope. Over the past couple of years, Pejac has been getting recognition for his simple, clever public art and gallery work. Using brushes, pencils, acrylic paint and sand paper, he creates works that blend into their surroundings using existing elements and textures. Often socially and politically engaged, his works vary from small interventions to large mural-like pieces. (src. Hi-Fructose Magazine)

So, I entered as an undecided major instead of film studies in university but took film specific courses.”“How did you end up convincing your parents to let you study film?”“I showed things to my parents that I personally made and they said, ‘Wow, look at what my son is making’.”
“영화를 전공하려고 했는데 부모님을 설득할 수가 없었어요. 고등학교 때 특히 심했어요. 그래서 대학교도 영화 전공이 아닌 자율전공학부로 지원해서 영화 전공 수업을 수강하며 다녔었죠.”“그러다가 어떻게 부모님을 설득했나요?””제가 직접 찍은 걸 부모님께 보여드렸죠. 그랬더니 ‘아 얘가 뭔가 만드는구나’ 하시더라고요.”
