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.’
