UK-based artist Magnus Gjoen always seeks to challenge a viewer's preconceived notions of what is the norm. The artist's intentions are to represent beauty in otherwise destructive or unappealing objects. By combining decorative appeal and destruction, Gjoen creates parallels between the two, forcing the spectator to draw connections. He adds fragility to strength while incorporating religious motifs. His works are thought-provoking and actually mind-boggling once you learn that these aren't actual sculptures. The experienced graphic designer creates each of these embellished items digitally.
