Magnus Gjoen - 'He Lived Like a Devil and Died Like a Saint'
I'm very fortunate to be within walking distance, or at worst bus, from a handful of amazing art galleries in London and do my utmost to visit as many exhibitions as possible. As a result my calendar is pretty full of Thursday evening openings. The news of Magnus Gjoen releasing a new print and signing work this week had me excited, that was before discovering that the event was being held in Brighton. I love Brighton and I have become a real fan of Magnus, but it's a school night so I hope to maybe catch up with him locally soon instead.
We are very pleased to announce that one of our best loved artists Magnus Gjoen will be revealing and signing his latest work, an exclusive 3D holographic lenticular print of the sold out edition 'He Lived Like a Devil and Died Like a Saint', in our Brighton Gallery on 11th February from 6.30pm-9pm. artrepublic invites you to join us on the evening for a relaxed reception of drinks, canapés and cutting edge artwork.
Magnus is a former designer for Vivienne Westwood and utilises juxtapositions in his artwork, exploring notions of life, death, religion, war, beauty and destruction. He often combines old masterpieces with a fresh modern perspective, reinterpreting the works and transforming their original meaning with stunning results. Have a look at his work via his site HERE.
'No one remembers the people who go through life without ruffling some feathers. Live like a Devil and people will have fond memories of you.' – Magnus Gjoen
