Andreas Englund’s Ageing Superheroes
Originally hailing from Falun, Stockholm based artist Andreas Englund recently came to our attention through his latest series of paintings; featuring a fragile, ageing Punisher. Depicting the decreped superhero in a variety of seemingly mundane situations, Andreas’ new work questions the fragility of life, our attitudes towards older generations, and the vulnerability of even the most outwardly strong people.
Andreas as yet has no plans to exhibit the pieces, but the full collection is now available to view in his extensive portfolio here.
Andreas explains the motives behind his work-
“Humour can be the carrier of messages that are otherwise hard to convey. For me, it liberates my thoughts and ideas from pretentiousness, while at the same time it opens doors to new routes and angles.”
