History can be an artist’s muse. The artist’s largest series to date, Charlotta Janssen’s portraits of 1956 Bus Boycotters and 1961 Freedom Riders are based on mug shots of these jailed heroes and other historic photos of the period.
Charlotta Janssen studied painting at the University of the Arts in Berlin. Her work has been exhibited in Tokyo, Shanghai, Berlin, Miami, Telluride, and New York.
