Jenson, a child prodigy, was called a "master sculptor" at the age of 10 by The Los Angeles Times. Residing in New York City during the 80's, Jenson's work was featured alongside paintings by his contemporaries Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Andy Warhol.
Ivan Jenson, a friend of the late Malcolm Forbes who once told Jenson, "you are better than Picasso." Jenson traveled numerous times on the Forbes Highlander Yacht to sketch portraits of some of the most powerful figures in corporate America. Mansion Art has footage from one of Jenson's trips on the Forbes Highlander Yacht on the MansionArt.com Web site. Jenson later painted the last commissioned portrait of Malcolm Forbes.
