The Big Apple prepares to be ‘Dussault-ed’ by native Vancouver street-artist Jason Dussault during up-coming NYC Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

The ‘Deconstructive/Constructive’ exhibition is set to open March 3rd at the new Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery, housing pop, street and graffiti art on New York City’s West 23rd.

“Fido” by Jason Dussault.

Jason’s large-scale mosaic and multi-media pieces will be exhibited alongside the likes of big names Picasso, Dali and Warhol and internationally recognized fellow street artist RETNA.

Combining multiple mediums into “nostalgic iconography” that re-ignites and calls into question the magic and memories of youth, Jason reconstructs the medium of mosaic with a bold, contemporary style.

Gallery director Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, in a recent Artnet interview commented, “Jason’s work shows figures we can all relate to. It is generational and we all grew up reading and seeing heroes in action. It resonates.”
