Personal Profile

Coen Janssen

Coen Janssen was born in the south of the Netherlands. As a child he was fascinated by the open space of the landscape and the atmospheric changes in the meadows caused by the weather. Drawing comics was something which interested him. He stopped with comics because he was not satisfied with the discipline in writing traditional structured stories from A to Z. Games-programming and improvisation in composing electronic music gave him more creative freedom. He graduated as bachelor in Communication in Eindhoven(NL). After graduation he chose for art on the AKI/Artez academy of fine-art and design in Enschede (NL). He started on Graphic Design and painting but choose to graduated on Media-Art. During his study he went on exchange to the University of Cuenca (SP) to study painting and video. Currently he is working as an artist in Rotterdam(NL) and fuses his concepts on video, animation, sound and painting. He is attending Philosophy courses (Phenomenology, Dialectics, Ephistemelogy) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. His videos are shown on national and international festivals.
