Jacub Gagnon claims that the only way a kid can survive life in a small town is through imagination. Many years later after he had moved to a big city, grown up, studied art and graduated he realised that imagination is essential no matter what the scenery is and no matter what age.
Jacub currently works as an artist in Toronto, Canada and creates images that question and entertain the discussion of connectivity.
He presents animals and objects in bizarre manners, placing them in scenes that oppose practicality so his paintings become a space where nature becomes unnatural. Using small brushes and handling them as he would a pencil, Jacub is able to achieve an illustrative quality that edges into the peculiar world of pop surrealism.
