Paul Jansen, New York City Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement Based in New York City, Paul Jansen (born August 19, 1945, in Boston, Massachusetts) graduated from the Fine Arts Department at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. After receiving postgraduate awards and scholarships, Jansen was recognized for his innate technique and began his career as a freelance illustrator. Shortly thereafter, Jansen emerged as one of the most inventive independent artists in the nation, and served as Residence Artist at Jimi Hendrix’ Electric Lady Recording Studios in New York City. Jansen’s work has appeared in Rolling Stone Magazine, The Village Voice, and Playboy, and includes album cover designs for Jimi Hendrix’ “War Heroes” and “Loose Ends”, and Henry McCullough’s “Mind Your Own Business!” which was nominated for Album Cover of the Year Award, London, England.
Comprised of brilliantly colored, abstract configurations that reflect the conventional ideas of classical painting, Jansen’s heightened perspectives portray intensity and sensuality, unlike anything else in modern painting. From ribbon-like forms to fantasies of color, Jansen confidently pushes and fulfills the making of a truly unique and intricate artist.
