In February 2014, Marcus Jansen received a visit from his Naples dealer Lauren Greenough with Pop Artist Romero Britto’s sister Roberta Britto at UNIT A Headquarters in Fort Myers. Her brother Romero often compared to Keith Haring, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein went from one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Brazil to an International superstar within just a few years.

This year Jansen was also invited by The Baker Museum director Frank Verpoorten to show at the Museum's "Florida Contemporary" exhibition in Naples, was a finalist at the Fleurieu Art Prize Australia curated by Nigel Hurst, Director and Chief Executive at Saatchi Gallery in London and the first Florida based artist ever to wind up on the cover of the New American Paintings Alumni publication. Jansen was recognized widely as a pioneer for his "socio-political" urban expressionism as critics have often called the work in the 1990's.

After a 30 year career of doing art starting in his graffiti art days in the 1980's, now at age 45, the Gulf War Veteran is collected in eight major International Museums from Russia, the United States to Asia. Museums include the (MMOMA) The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, The New Britain Museum of American Art and the Smithsonian Institution.

Jansen’s upcoming show in Sao Paulo will be hosted on April 30. 2014 at ROBERTA BRITTO GALERIA DE ARTE, Rua Oscar Freire 562, Jardins, São Paulo, Brazil. The exhibition will show a variety new paintings for his first introduction in South America and be accompanied by a show catalog.

Jansen’s show will include a TV appearance on FAUSTAO where Jansen will be interviewed. For information about the exhibition please contact: UNIT A at or T: 239.338.8449
