For his 2010 solo exhibition at 101 Exhibit in Miami Florida, Jansen carries us into the shadows of our 21st century existence where he will exhibit large and small scale 2009/2010 works, that tackle world events, increasing surveillance and issues that effect humanity at large. His large sweeping urban landscapes show a unique display of apocalyptic dreamscapes from the artist's imagination. His delivery is a sophisticated blend of complex overlapping layers and compositions. Noted Art Historian Jerome A. Donson who worked with many action painters in the past, such as Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline states in Jansen's book, "Jansen's paintings are reminiscent of the Ash Can school. There will be many followers in this style of work, but there will be only one Marcus Jansen."

He joined the Armed Forced and eight years later discharged and managed transform his life from a Gulf War veteran to an internationally sought after painter.
