- Magnus Gjoen
Magnus Gjoen is a contemporary digital artists.
Chappell Contemporary have represented Magnus for over 3 years now and he is still one of our most sought after artists.
Magnus Gjoen’s manipulated Limited edition prints place beautiful imagery, reminiscent of renaissance paintings by old masters, or of Wedgwood ceramics over objects including, Uzi’s, Bombs and Skulls.
The juxtaposition of the beautiful wrapped around the deadly and sinister objets can be interoperated as a comment on love and hate, war and peace, A deadly Uzi weapon being made out of ceramic is completely contradictory, how could something so beautiful cause so much destruction.
Is this a comment on the human race as a whole?
