Thought-Provoking Paintings by Magnus Gjoen

Published Apr 20, 2017

Contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen blends fine art and pop culture to produce his intriguing artworks.

“His pieces draw on history and allusion, using existing artworks or fragments from the past to create his own, contemporary aesthetic. Describing himself as an ‘accidental’ artist, Gjoen studied fine art and fashion design which led to a successful career in fashion, working for brands such as Vivienne Westwood.

A move back into the art world came from decorating the walls of his London flat and realising he could do so with his own artworks. Thought-provoking and often-emotional, Gjoen’s art offers a modern spin on old masterpieces or manipulates powerful and strong objects into something fragile yet beautiful.”
