Magnus Gjoen, former designer for Vivienne Westwood, creates images that are full beauty but also thought provoking. His art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect. Magnus Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach.
A double portrait of a man and a woman defaced to make them smiling and happy, hinting at the person behind the facade rather than that which is portrayed.
From the ‘I’d Rather than be Happy Than Dignified’ series which comments on modern life’s need to portray a perfect life rather than that which is the truth.
‘The Colonials’ is available in two edition sizes.
