About Horst Janssen

Janssen loved provocation, playing with words and ambiguities, which he often disguised in a humorous way. With a variety of very fine Pencil strokes he succeeds in creating a great variety of grey tones. That is why he gave himself the much-cited name “Million Stroke Artist” (“Millionenstrichler”).
