This pop coloured angel contrasts with the traditional printed backdrop and breaks free from the monochrome garden of Eden behind her. The angel represents freedom of thought and an escape from religion and conformity.
Magnus Gjoen, former designer for Vivienne Westwood, creates images that are full of 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.
