Jansen’s Faceless series were first painted in 2012 and he continues developing the series today. His Faceless series investigates the secrecy of faceless men in suits, suggesting that perhaps the real power behind these anonymous, faceless men lies somewhere, or with someone, else.
The first Faceless works were shown at the Contemporary Museum of Art PERMM Russia’s “Anonymous” Exhibition curated by the well-known and controversial curator Marat Guelman. Works were placed in the permanent collection at the PERMM the same year and a series appeared in Division Magazine February 2014.
