Andreas Englund

Born 1974 in Falun and currently lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden

 

BIOGRAPHY

“Working with communication became a natural choice for me since I´ve always wanted to share my thoughts with others. Either through conversation or visual media I want to share insights and thoughts, experience and humor. My foundation is based on storytelling and communicating. 

The super hero concept showed out to be an inspiring concept/theme and it has opened doors to other routes and motifs – contributing to define the kind of artist I am today.“ 

Based in Stockholm, he is mostly recognised for the photo realistic and humoristic oil paintings depicting the everyday life of an anonymous superhero. The series ranges from the superhero’s first mission as a toddler to being an old man, still struggling with everyday trivialities. 

Other themes include horses and muscle cars. The horses are painted as dalecarlia horses, a famous symbol from the Swedish region of Dalecarlia, where Andreas was born.
