Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having recently turned his hand to the art of print making, Gjoen creates images that are full of startling beauty as well as a profundity of thought: his art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect.
‘I’m Not Afraid Of The Dark (Uzi)’ depicts a charcoal-coloured Uzi, decorated with colourful, Baroque flowers and an image of classical bust. With its mash-up of styles and disparate elements, Gjoens’s print brilliantly highlights the stark contrast between natural beauty and human violence.
