Street artist's proposal: Pejac

Faced with the need to spend a lot of time at home, some artists are using their free time to inspire others to explore their creativity.

Spanish street artist Peja is known for his brilliant use of silhouettes and negative space. Where many see a window, Pejac sees a canvas, and now, he's encouraging others to join in the fun with his campaign.

The concept is simple: just look outside and then draw a figure that can interact with what you see.

Pejac put together a tutorial so that anyone can participate, and his idea is already taking off. People all over the world are posting their work online: from a ballerina spinning on electrical wires to children jumping on a trampoline, the figures are helping to build a bridge between outdoor living and indoor creativity.

How do you get started? First, examine the view from your window and decide what you would like to create. Then, Pejac suggests taking a photo of yourself or someone else mimicking the desired pose. From there, simply place a piece of paper on your phone or tablet and trace the outline. Once you've cut out the figure, use the sheet as a template in your window and you have your own interactive silhouette.


All that's left is to take a photo and tag it #StayArtHomePejac so the world can see your masterpiece.

So why don't you give it a try.
