30 Jul MARCUS JANSEN PART OF NEW MOVEMENT OF CREATIVITY WITH AN ABSOLUT BLANK
In collaboration with a new generation of artists, Absolut Vodka is introducing ABSOLUT
BLANK, a global creative movement, in which Absolut appears as a catalyst for contemporary leading-edge creativity.
The recent cover artist of “New American Paintings” publication No. 94 southern edition, Marcus Jansen a SW Florida resident and native of New York City, is one of the only 18 selected artists to contribute to the Absolut campaign with a uniquely painted abstract work of art. Much of which, depcits his typical style of “urban expressionism” and that can be seen in most of his his cutting-edge as well as socio-politically charged work.
The Absolut’s publicity statement reads: ”For Bronx-born artist Marcus Jansen, accidents are just a matter of perception. He lets them happen in his paintings because they tap into something the conscious mind leaves out.” –
Jansen’s work, which is represented by 101 EXHIBIT in Miami, Florida, can be found in the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA), the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, The New Britain Museum of American Art and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art and is seen by many as one of the most exciting painters emerging in America today. Other artists included in the ABSOLUT campaing are: Adhemas Batista, Aestethic Apparatus, Brett Amory, Kinsey, David Bray, Eduardo Recife, Fernando Chamarelli, Good Wives & Warriors, Jeremy Fish, Ludovica Gioscia, Mario Wagner, Morning Breath, Robert Mars, Sam Flores, Thomas Doyle, UVA, Zac Freeman.
