Marcus Jansen was born in New York to a West Indian mother and a German father. As a young man, he moved to Germany, where he received his education, but art eventually drew him back to New York, where he began to use graffiti. Now, he is one of the most prominent and sought-after working artists, a pioneer of a new urban expressionism in painting. This book accompanies the first major European retrospective of his work, setting striking reproductions of his major pieces, as well as some previously unpublished works on paper, alongside essays that explain how and why his post-apocalyptic scenarios so utterly captivate viewers today.
