Magnus Gjoen

Incorporating symbols such as skulls and machine guns that remind us of the ephemeral nature of earthly pursuits, he creates contemporary vanitas for the digital age. Drawing inspiration from street and pop art, and juxtaposing it with fine art, Gjoen creates new and modern takes on old masterpieces, questioning the correlation between religion, war, beauty, destruction and art itself.
