Travis Janssen received an MFA in Printmaking from Arizona State University in 2007 and a BFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2000. His creative practice focuses on printmaking while extending into the mediums of video and installation. Janssen is also engaged with collaborative processes and cross-disciplinary investigation, having collaborated with a variety of individuals on a diverse range of projects including prints and documentary videos. The exploration of perception and reflection within conscious and unconscious viewing experiences is a common thread throughout his work, often distilling events within the human condition. To this end, it is his implicit goal that viewers develop recognition of intriguing phenomena and further understanding about the visual world. Over the last five years he has shown work in over seventy exhibitions across the United States and venues in New Zealand, Russia, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
