Magnus Gjoen

Magnus Gjoen, who takes his inspiration from Street and Pop Art, transforms potentially destructive objects such as a hand grenade into beautiful objects of art.

Magnus Gjoen about his work:

“My art examines how to change peoples relationship and preconceived notions of objects. Something which is potentially extremely destructive can be made into beautiful yet fragile objects of art. It’s this misconception of beauty which I want us to see in a different light, being it weapons, animals or the human race itself. The latter which is capable of creating immense distruction.”
