‘Monkey Set’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen. From a limited edition of 8, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
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. Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach. ‘Monkey Set’ depicts a skull, an atomic bomb, and a pink uzi, each one printed with antiquated designs, from a classical Grecian frieze, to a detailed baroque painting. A small brown monkey perches on each item, its tiny paw clenched into a fist within a colourful, Mickey Mouse glove. With its mash-up of styles and disparate elements, Gjoens’s print brilliantly highlights the stark contrast between natural beauty and human violence, and the gossamer line between life and death, with powerful visual impact.

About The Artist - Magnus Gjoen


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. Using collage and bricolage, often layering sumptuous gold leaf against stark black and white, Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles and media, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach. His pieces draw on history and allusion, using existing art works or fragments from the past to create his own, contemporary aesthetic.

Gjoen’s work treads a delicate line between humour and horror, and what is borne out of these two opposing forces is often haunting and unsettling, while always saturated with an unrivalled beauty. A tightrope walk of contradictions, Gjoen’s work is rich, evocative and unabashedly glamorous, a combination that marks the emerging British artist out as a unique force to be reckoned with.
