Deeper into the gallery, you’ll find work from the incomparable Jason Wasserman. Wasserman has just completed numerous works for the Ubisoft head office downtown and will be showing several of his graphic black and white illustrations at Station 16.

Marie-Claude Marquis’ hand painted illustrated plates were by far one of the most memorable, both adorable and hilarious, with Québecismes juxtaposed against wildlife flora and fauna, making the combination all the more eccentric.
