    ‘I’d Rather Die Happy Than Dignified’ is a Lenticular Print by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen from a limited edition of 999.

    Details

    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. ‘I'd Rather Die Happy Than Dignified’ depicts a Baroque-style portrait of woman, decked out in rich, silk attire.

    Over her face, Gjoen has scrawled childish clown features in black ink, visible only from certain angles due to the print’s lenticular qualities. At once comical and unsettling, ‘I'd Rather Die Happy Than Dignified’ is a modern day homage to Duchamp’s Mona Lisa, capturing the same irony and art-world wit, but finished a little of Gjoen’s own style, contrasting pillar-box red and sky-blue with the in-your-face, colour blocked background.
