Urban Vernacular blends the two major influences in artist Marcus Jansen's oeuvre, his early days as a graffiti writer and the influence of the Expressionists from his days in Germany. In this work, Jansen reacts to the societal erosion of today's inner city environment and the juxtaposition the innocents as they go about their daily life in the midst of encompassing urban decay.
