A stunning release from the inimitable Magnus Gjoen, using a stark black background to define his signature skull motif whilst furthermore adding a sumptuous contrast of textures with the rich baroque flowers. The eye sockets and teeth of the skull are defined by rich layering of decadent flowers, illustrating Gjoen's ability to juxtapose concepts of life and death and bring beauty to the macabre.
Gjoen questions the notions of beauty by juxtaposing a range of styles and media, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic with a fine art approach. His pieces draw on history and allusion, using existing artworks or fragments from the past to create his own, contemporary aesthetic.
Gjoen's work is exhibited worldwide in galleries and fairs, previous commissions have been from Ian Flemming Publications (James Bond Author) and the Wallace Collection Museum (Mayfair). Gjoen’s works hang on the walls of Kate Moss’s London home, whilst the art world has dubbed him as Britain’s most prominent rising star within contemporary circles.
