Heaven Lent You A Soul Earth Will Lend You A Grave XL is a limited edition 3D lenticular by Magnus Gjoen.
"Dilated to infinity beyond the limits imposed by the architecture’, the original fresco plays with perspective whilst the modern form of the lenticular pushes the games of perspective even further. Displaying a marketing savvy similar to today’s Instagrammer or social media expert, the Barberini ceiling offers a masterclass in self promotion & propaganda, a recurring theme and comparison in Magnus’ work. ‘We think that this obsession with portraying oneself in the perfect light is something new that has come with the age of social media, but in fact, humans have been doing so for centuries."
From a very small edition of 15, the piece is signed and numbered by the artist.

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.
A custom frame is the perfect way to complement your beautiful limited edition artwork. Our custom framing is a bespoke handmade service.
Own Art is a national initiative giving you the option to spread the cost of your contemporary art with 0% finance.
