Marcus Jansen socially charged metropolitan scene artistic creations are impacted by the two inverse universes he experienced childhood in, and his work is arranged somewhere close to spray painting and contemporary workmanship. Investigating and report the human condition basically, socially and strategically. Marcus Jansen large scale canvases are also a visual metaphor for the battlefields he encountered as a member of the US Armed Forces while deployed in conflicts such as Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
