Surreal Animal Paintings by Jacub Gagnon

Canadian artist Jacub Gagnon graduated in 2009 with a degree in BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD). He creates whimsical animal paintings using mainly acrylics and oil on canvas. The surreal paintings of animals are amazingly realistic as well as intriguing. Animals are often depicted with odd objects and in bizarre scenery which one would never expect to witness.

“Within the stage that is my canvas, I present animals and objects in bizarre manners, placing them in scenes that oppose practicality. My paintings become a space in which nature becomes unnatural, bordering surreal.”

The artist's paintings can be seen in several galleries throughout the USA and Canada. The artist is currently being represented by the Thinkspace Gallery in LA. You can see more of his work on his website and join him on Facebook.
