How much of this impression is true under the definition of a psychopath? Here are six characteristics of a psychopath: Lack of empathy: Psychopaths are callous and coldhearted.

Surreal art by Jacub Gagnon Jacub Gagnon is a Canadian artist who was born in 1987. He graduated with a BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) in 2009. Currently practicing as an artist in Toronto, he creates images that question and entertains the discussion of connectivity. 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. On April 1st, Thinkspace Gallery will be opening Short Stories , their third solo show from Jacub Gagnon in their Culver City space. His Facebook.
