Edwin Janssen -

Edwin Janssen studied at the Academy of Arts, Rotterdam and Ateliers '63, Haarlem. His first exhibition, in 1985, was at the WP Gallery, Rotterdam. He has recently made installations for the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, the Stadsgalerij, Heerlen and the Museum voor Hedendaagse Kunst in Ghent. The work combines images and objects from commercial and personal sources to comment on the transient qualities and clichés of his youth and family life.
