Khaos is a spectacular limited edition archival pigment print with 24ct gold leaf on 308 gsm cotton rag by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen.
Khaos combines different elements of Magnus Gjoen’s work into a gold backed kaleidoscope of imagery. The centre is a skull covered by blue delft pottery designs. On its teeth is the date MMXVII (2017). It is surrounded by a ring of alternating scarab and stag beetles again covered with blue delft pottery designs. The background is a halo of 24ct gold leaf.
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.
