Heaven Not Earth is a limited edition screen print by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen. The piece is printed with archival pigment inks onto 308gsm cotton rag paper and was first released in 2020.
A modern day take on classical painting, Heaven Not Earth depicts a human heart, beating against a duck-egg blue background. Gjoen has covered the thumping organ with imagery from antiquity: Grecian nudes frolic beneath cloud-puffed skies, while chubby cherubs drape silken wreaths around the scene. Gjoen plays with perspective, as cherubs and silk spilling beyond the boundaries of the painted heart. The piece plays with convention, mixing classical with urban art, depicting the organ of love in all its anatomical reality, and challenging the confines of the printed form.
Formerly a designer for Vivienne Westwood, Gjoen brings a dose of punk fashion to his limited edition print works. Known for blending the magnificent with the macabre, Gjoen is drawn to fragility, as each of his works dance the fine line between life and death, love and hate, beauty and destruction. From a limited edition of 80, hand signed and numbered by the artist, Heaven Not Earth is nothing short of divine.

About the artist
Formerly a shoe designer for Vivienne Westwood, Magnus Gjoen’s migration to the world of printmaking has been nothing short of spectacular: his highly stylised and effortlessly stylish prints have earned him a reputation as one of the contemporary art world’s most sought after rising stars.
Incorporating elements of renaissance, baroque, street and fine art, Gjoen’s work explores the juxtapositions between life and death, power and fragility, and beauty and destruction, for an aesthetic that is at once opulent and macabre. From human skulls to hand grenades, Gjoen drapes his subjects in sumptuous swathes of Baroque design, creating a dramatic style that demands attention: this is not for the faint of heart.
