ART VERONA, October 10. 2013 – October 14. 2013

Marcus Jansen was the cover artist for the Alumni publication “New American Paintings No. 94” in 2011 with his work “Creeping Obstacles in Kansas.” A 135×88″ sweeping size canvas that sold the same year to his biggest private collector in Naples who owns the largest Jansen collection of any private collector in the world.

According to long time Florida art dealer Glenn Lorchi. “It has been my opinion that”New American Paintings" has been especially stingy when selecting Florida artists in the past. The publication is a juried collection of regional artist work. They split the country into four regions and publish four different select collections. Marcus is the first artist from Florida on the cover that I can remember." said Lorchi. Jansen’s work then was selected by Dan Cameron, (Founder of the largest American Biennial, the US Biennial inc. and currently the Chief Curator at the Orange County Museum of Art in California).

This year Jansen was already selected the winner of the "Aesthetica Art Prize 2013, United Kingdom, the “Dave Bown Projects” Award 2012 in the United States and the “Art Laguna Art Prize” 2013 in March that took place in Venice Italy with Jansen being the only American painter selected among an International panel of jurors that included: Lina Lazaar, (Great Britain, Expert in International Contemporary Art for Sotheby’s), Sabine Schasch, (Switzerland, Director and Curator of Kunsthaus Basel), Adam Budak,(United States, Curator of Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden of Washington) and many other high profile jurors from across the globe. The International selection that consisted of Painters, Photographers, Sculptors and Installation artists were presented at the Arsenale-Venice, Tese di san Cristoforo, Venice Italy early 2013.

Art Verona was conceived of, and initiated by, Danilo Vignati, the president of Fullsteam s.r.l., a company specialised in art events, and Massimo Simonetti who for twenty-five years had been a well-known gallery owner. The first edition took place between 13 and 16 October 2005 and immediately aroused great interest. It was a totally unexpected event and at once caught the attention of the art world because of its insistence on high quality and of its decision to invite only Italian galleries with the highest profile. Year after year, innovation after innovation, it has grown both in quality and in its success among critics and the public. And now, in part because of its particular approach, it is considered one of the few important Italian events that absolutely cannot be missed.

Jansen will be showing at ART VERONA with a formal introduction to an Italian audience in preparation for his planned solo Museum show in Italy in 2014. He will be represented by Galleria Maria Bianca Rizzi & Matthias Ritter. Pad 11 – Stand G18

Jansen’s Museum collections include The PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA), The Housatonic Museum of Art, CT, The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Smithsonian Institution. He is also one of the ABSOLUT VODKA artist’s along side names like Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. Jansen’s work has appeared in News media such as the The Boston Globe, the New York Times, Art News, Art in America and Vanity Fair Italy. His work will be at the International Auction house Phillips de Pury Moscow and Geneva in 2014.

The Art Verona takes place October 10. 2013 – October 14. 2013. Please contact Terry Tincher for free VIP tickets prior to event: terryunitaspace@gmail.com or visit Jansen’s Headquarters www.unitaspace.com.

Marcus Jansen, has become a household name not just in Florida State or in the United States, perhaps easily marked by his cover appearance on the Alumni National publication “New American Paintings No. 94” in 2011 with his work “Creeping Obstacles in Kansas.” A 135×88″ sweeping size canvas that sold the same year to his biggest private collector in Naples who owns the largest Jansen collection of any private collector in the world.

The publication is a juried collection of regional artist work. They split the country into four regions and publish four different select collections.
