The world’s most impactful art is born from the expression of internal struggle. Jason Dussault has wielded the power of that understanding, and has channelled that energy through nostalgic iconography.

From an artistic rage that lives beneath his perception, Jason creates an homage to one of the most primitive yet connected mediums in art history, the mosaic. By combining tile, paint, grout, resin and vintage porcelain, Jason has re-envisioned a 4,000-year-old craft that has spawned masterpieces and made it his own.

A true labour of love, Jason’s pieces are created over a two- to four-week process which he navigates on his own accord, free from assistants or interns. His dedication, curiosity and sacrifice have culminated in humbleness, the true mark of an artist. Applied in a medium that compels us to understand our true fragility, Jason’s mosaic work becomes a mirror image of life itself.

As we gain experience, the world becomes less mysterious, as we are afforded more and more looks behind the veil. Jason has recreated subjects from his past to help him bring back the magic, excitement, and hopefulness that stimulated his youth. The culmination of symbolism and raw material transforms Jason’s pieces from one dimensional objects to works that resonate with us on a visceral level.

Having spent over a decade in the financial sector, Jason reconnected with his passion for art while living in the historic Republic of Malta. He now shares his time between New York and his hometown of Vancouver: one of which offers unparalleled variety and vibrancy, the other a place of natural wonder and beauty. This creates a perfect balance of influence for him to draw upon, a dichotomized resource of energy that allows Jason to show us the layers of the world through the scope of our youth.
