Name: Jacub Gagnon
Sign: The Water Bearer
Ice Cream.Lime ice (also anything chocolate!),
Book. Fantasy novels…..and Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers,
A1. Manbearpig; half man, half bear and half pig.
A2. I would probably teach it my weekly itinerary and have it repeat it to me often as I am the worst with dates and remembering things.
A3. I’m not sure if Scooby Doo is considered a super hero but he would definitely be my sidekick if he is. I love dogs way too much and oddly enough have hair similar to Shaggy. We would make a good duo!
A5. People that are overly confident to the point of rudeness.
A6. Canada’s Wonderland-The Wild Beast! And at little podunk fairs I love The Zipper!
A7. Eating Crepes while walking the canal in Paris.
A8. There was a brief period of time where I wanted to be a miner. I’d go into caves with a pick axe and dig up jewels and nuggets of gold the size of my fist….It didn’t take long to realize that it doesn’t quite work like that. Probably one of the biggest upsets of my childhood.
A9. One time someone said my paintings were ‘neato!’ It’s a fine compliment and I am genuinely happy that people think as much!
A10. potbellied elephants (miniature sized elephants the size of a potbellied pig)
In the spotlight Jacub captures nature inspired surreal moments, decorated with toys and nick nacks, little found treasures; his work is a dark whimsy. Set behind a black backdrop, his subjects dance in contradiction. Tiny elephants and vagabond birds, a house that sits on a dead dandelion; creates a composition suspended in the realm of imagination. His attention to detail only helps intensify and create the illusion that is Gagnon’s surreal wonderland.
