We Desire Above All, That Which Will Destroy Us

This special collaborative limited edition comes from artists, Magnus Gjoen and Richard Berner. We Desire Above All That Which Destroys Us depicts an atom bomb decorated with vintage wallpaper being besieged by Berner’s signature tiny figures, or ‘champs’ as he calls them.

Magnus Gjoen challenges our preconceived notions of beauty by offering a modern take on old masterpieces, and transforming items typically associated with violence into delicate works of art. His work, which combines sensibilities of Street Art, Pop Art and Fine Art, highlights humanity’s capacity for creating immense beauty one minute, and mass destruction the next.

Brighton-based illustrator and painter Richard Berner, creates intricate pieces, often inspired by cultural icons, where a larger image is painstakingly crafted from hundreds of individually-drawn figures. Inspired by the likes of Salvador Dali and MC Esher, Berner describes his work as ‘surreal architecture.’

This giclée print is from a limited edition of 30, signed by the artists.

    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.
