Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having recently turned his hand to the art of print making, Gjoen creates images that are full of startling beauty as well as a profundity of thought: his art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect. Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach.
Set against a shimmering, gold leaf background, ‘It’s Darkest Before Dawn - Gold Leaf’ depicts a human skull, washed with soft, sky blue and plastered with a Baroque, floral pattern. A modern day memento mori, Gjoen’s print beautifully highlights the gossamer line between life and death, for a profound work of contemporary art.
