About

Magnus Gjoen is a London-born artist with an impressive fashion background, having studied fashion design in London and Milan and having worked for Vivienne Westwood amongst others. Gjoen takes inspiration from street and pop art fusing it with fine art, to question beliefs between religion, war beauty, destruction and art. His art is simultaneously at once uplifting and damning; a salvation for a godless generation. Updating old masterpieces and presenting them in a new way has always been Gjoen's prerogative, where he expertly manages the balance between old and contemporary. From the woman's expression alone, one cannot easily see the secret that the woman is hiding, until the eye goes further down her arm towards the knife in hand. Depicted in regal but modernised dress, the image itself is in black and white, to let the yellow gold stand out, especially in the gold leaf background that is a signature of the artist's style. With empathy turning into intrigue, the artist comments on how we are easily manipulated by beauty, media and our surroundings in assessing a persons guilt.
