PEJAC – HOPE – 1000 Unique Prints

PEJAC - HOPE (Detail) - 2024HOPE is a series of 1000 unique prints which revisits a mural painted on the wall of a Spanish hospital in 2020.

Pejac created the mural to remember the tragedies of Covid-19, but also the togetherness the pandemic fostered in communities around the world. Thousands of tiny figures form the illusion of a crevice. On close inspection, each has their own story, interacting with empathy and solidarity.

During a month-long residency at Make-Ready in London, Pejac reinterpreted his crevice on a blank canvas. The process was documented 1000 times. Each stage corresponds with a unique print. As a final flourish, one figure from each print is highlighted by hand with 24 carat gold leaf. In this figure, the artist hopes the viewer can see themselves shining amongst the crowd.

The series of 1000 prints are divided by edition number into eight equal groups. Group will be available at different prices, and will be released in a sequence of drops starting on 15 July. Each group will be available until sold out, or until the next drop – whichever comes first. Prints will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and edition numbers within each group will be allocated at random.
