Lives and works in London
On completion of a bachelors BA at Camberwell UAL in 2018, Jansen was selected for the Clyde and Co Art Award that included a year long group show and mentoring programme.
To further pursue collaboration and exhibition opportunities he took part in the artist-led Turps Off-Site Painters Programme that accompanied his studio practice during 2020/21.
Recent residencies include PADA, based in Barreiro Portugal during the month of February 2022, which led to the invitation to join the Dida Gallery Residency that took place in Ivory Coast. This was an all expenses paid gallery residency working alongside a great selection of West African artists during the months of May and June.
During his MA in Painting at the RCA (2023), he was awarded The Basil H. Alkazzi Scholarship Award.
