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.

‘Heaven Lent You A Soul Earth Will Lend You A Grave’ is a limited edition 3D lenticular piece by pop surrealist artist, Magnus Gjoen.

Price: £3500 | £9500

Limited edition of 25 | Limited edition of 5

3-Dimensional lenticular optical illusion

‘If Baroque painting had a twenty-first century soul it would take the form of the lenticular.
Heaven Lent You a Soul Earth Will Lend a Grave is a modern reinterpretation of one of the greatest examples of Baroque painting – ‘The Triumph of Divine Providence (and the Fulfilment of its Purposes under Pope Urban VIII)’ by Petro da Cortona (1632-1639) in the Palazzo Barberini in Rome. Opulent & theatrical, the ceiling of Palazzo Barberini in Rome vibrates with the thrum of its 100 plus characters and is a masterpiece of seventeenth century painting and optical illusion.
‘Dilated to infinity beyond the limits imposed by the architecture’, the original fresco plays with perspective whilst the modern form of the lenticular pushes the games of perspective even further. Displaying a marketing savvy similar to today’s Instagrammer or social media expert, the Barberini ceiling offers a masterclass in self promotion & propaganda, a recurring theme and comparison in Magnus’ work. ‘We think that this obsession with portraying oneself in the perfect light is something new that has come with the age of social media, but in fact humans have been doing so for centuries.’’- Magnus Gjoen on his new 3D piece.

“There were opium dens where one could buy oblivion, dens of horror where the memory of old sins could be destroyed by the madness of sins that were new.” Oscar Wilde in his novel, ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ (1891). These two skulls hint back to Victorian East London and the Opium Dens that sprung up in the 19th Century. The juxtaposition of the victorian-esque florals, Chinoiserie palettes with the skulls becoming something that could appear to someone who was smoking Opium. Beautiful but at the same time terrifying. – Magnus Gjoen on this limited edition piece.
