Gjoen brings a touch of punk- sensibility to the art tradition. His fashion background infuses Magnus’ art, re-thinking old concepts and re-interpreting them for the contemporary climate.

Working to shed new light on past treasures, Magnus’ prints alters the relationships between the viewer and the preconceived notions of objects; something which is ostensibly powerful and destructive is transfigured into beautiful and fragile objects of art, be it weapons, animals or the human race itself.

Taking inspiration from the street and pop art and juxtaposing it with fine art, Magnus creates new and modern takes on old masterpieces, questioning the correlation between religion, war beauty, destruction and art. His art at once uplifting and damning; this is salvation for a godless generation.
