About Andreas


Andreas Englund was born in Falun, Sweden, before moving to Stockholm. In his job as an art director, he taught himself to communicate with great economy. This has proved an invaluable asset to his equally narrative and humorous paintings.

His latest series ushers a “not-so-perfect super hero” through various mundane and everyday activities.

‘Humor can be the carrier of messages that are otherwise hard to convey,’ says Englund. ‘For me, it liberates my thoughts and ideas from pretentiousness while at the same time it opens doors to new routes and angles.’

His work has been exhibited in Stockholm.

"There is something I find incredibly comical about Mr. Englund's work. Sure the everyday situations the hero finds himself in are funny, but I can relate to the aging of the Hero. I'm from the generation where all super hero's wore tights, capes, and probably fly. They fit Mr. England's hero to a tee. But at some point, like all of us, the hero grows older, practice hobbies, go to the dentist, grocery shops and even enjoys a quiet movie night on the couch."

Looks like a retired supervillain. You can tell it's a villain and not a hero because of the skull on his chest. He has a sweet car that still has weapons attached to the sides so he is a villain. He got some karma since he dropped his groceries! haha, suckerrr...

In shopping I see reality setting in. Ticket on car, clumsiness, every day routine.

"Shopping" makes me feel guilty. I feel bad for the guy. He has helped so many people and now nobody is there to help him :(

Lmfao'd to this

real crisp..
