From 1987 to 1995 Jaursch studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich . After an abstract phase in the mid-1990s, after 2000 he turned to representational-figurativepainting. His conceptual work on the subject of "longing", the leitmotif of his paintings, which today consists of more than 1000 images, today works in a representational- surreal style characterized by an open, very painterly brushstroke. His work was throughout Germany, z. In Munich and Berlin, and can also be seen internationally. Markus Jaursch lives and works in Passau , Lower Bavaria.
