The brand new MECKA Gallery is a large warehouse space in the Brooklyn‘s emerging East Williamsburg neighborhood. Tonight’s show will kick off a yearlong revolving cast of up and coming and established street artist (the line-up is stacked by the way).
Rene covered every imaginable inch of the warehouse space with his trademark style of collaborating pop culture images mixed with a satirical intelligence. Highlights include new oil on canvas works such as “WI-FI Jesus” (get there early this gem will not last long…), floor to ceiling classic Gagnon images such as “Mona Bubble” and “Graffiti Soup”, and a remote control robot who paints stencils!
Gagnon spent two weeks living in the space to complete the colossal task of creating an ADHD wonderland, or as Rene proclaims he has been “Overloading your senses’ since 1986!”. Mission accomplished!!
