About Magnus Gjoen, Urban Artist

Magnus Gjoen was born in London to Norwegian parents and studied design in London and Milan and has worked as a denim designer and graphic designer for Vivienne Westwood amongst others.

Magnus Gjoen’s art examines how to change peoples relationships and preconceived notions of objects.

Something which is potentially extremely destructive can be made into beautiful, yet fragile objects of art.

It is this misconception of beauty which Magnus Gjoen wants us to see in a different light, being it weapons, animals or the human race itself. The latter which is capable of creating immense beauty but also capable of destroying it all.

He often questions the correlation between religion, war, beauty & destruction in his art.
