- Magnus Gjoen
I absolute adore this print, it is totally on my wants list!
Magnus Gjoen, ‘I’d rather be Happy than dignified’ is a limited edition Print with Gold leaf detail.
I always think art should evoke an emotion, and I especially love modern art that make me smile.
What is not to love about this engaging work by London based artist Magnus Gjoen, with his trademark use of tradition imagery combined with a modern twist.
A detailed Baroque style portrait with a scribbled child like smilie face, set against a striking geometric background of Lime green, gold and pink.
None of it particularly makes sense in the normal sense of the word, is it a comment on art, is it a comment on society? perhaps both and perhaps thats why I love it so much!!
