Michael Jansen: OptiMystic Vitamins

Art can heal

The visual artist and composer Michael (Mike) Jansen has been working for a couple of years on work cycle simular to psychedelic images. These images are created in complex analogue and digital processes on canvas, paper and hard materials. Jansen, who has been dealing with medical questions practically and philosophically for decades, manages to fascinate the viewers with his creations and to introduce them in a hedonistic way into an effective healing process. The 1951 born artist, with visiting professorships at the University of the Arts in Bremen and the Center European d'Art Contemporain, Vallauris, Nice, became first known through his cooperation with Joseph Beuys (Art Museum Vaduz Lichtenstein) and John Cage.
