‘Flower Grenade’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen. From a limited edition of 100, 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. Against an ice-white background, ’Blue Flower Grenade’ depicts perfectly formed hand grenade, plastered with a sky-blue, Baroque, floral pattern, to highlight the stark contrast between natural beauty and human violence. Brilliantly iconic ‘Flower Grenade is a triumph of contemporary print making.
