We're unlikely to receive more of this item.

‘Vol 1: Skulls’ is a limited edition box set, created exclusively for art republic by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen.

Each black box contains 6 Archival Pigment prints on 305gsm Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth paper, one lenticular print, plus title sheet and colophon.

From a limited edition of 80 the collection is signed and numbered by the artist.




Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having 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.



‘Vol 1: Skulls’ brings together two of Gjoen’s most compelling themes: beauty and the macabre. Each print depicts a skull emblazoned with decadent Baroque imagery, from portraiture, to floral design, to intricate, geometric pattern: an incarnation of death that resides in the sublime.



Print titles include:



  • ‘Dei Gratia'

  • ‘Everything Ends’

  • ‘He Lived Like a Devil’

  • ‘Samsara’

  • ‘Roses are Dead (Lenticular)’

  • ‘I Thought We Would Only Meet in Death’



A set of truly striking and evocative prints, ‘Vol 1 - Skulls’ is undoubtedly Gjoen’s magnum opus, to date.




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.
