Q1. What animal is your spirit guide?

Q2. If you had a parrot what would you teach it to say?

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.

Q3. What superhero would you make your sidekick?

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!

A4. Genuiness

Q5. Biggest Pet Peeve?

A5. People that are overly confident to the point of rudeness.

Q7. Best vacation memory?

A7. Eating Crepes while walking the canal in Paris.

Q8. Childhood ambition?

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.

Q9. Best compliment ever received?

A9. One time someone said my paintings were ‘neato!’ It’s a fine compliment and I am genuinely happy that people think as much!

Q10. What do you wish was invented?

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.

Q6 Favorite amusement park and ride?

A6. Though Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio has the best roller coasters ever, I have to go with Kennywood in Pittsburgh just for all the memories there growing up… and civic pride. My favorite ride there is The Phantom’s Revenge.

Q7. Best vacation memory?

A7.We went to Disney World when we were young and my dad tricked my brother Ben and I into going on a ride called Space Mountain. Once I realized it was a roller coaster, I started crying hysterically but couldn’t get out of it. At the beginning of the ride, it takes you up a ramp and I really thought I was going into space and it scared the shit out of me. I was easily scared and tricked as a kid. Now I try to scare and trick people as often as I can.

Nice moustache.
