Back in 2013, we first posted about the fantastic retrofuturistic paintings of Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag. Stålenhag’s paintings combine nostalgic imagery from the artist’s childhood in 1980s Sweden with hovercraft, dinosaurs, robots, and other sci-fi elements. For the first time his works will be available to English-language audiences in a pair of art books: Tales from The Loop and Swedish Machines, Lonely Places. The books will be published by Free League Publishing, who is raising funds for the books on Kickstarter. Prints of Stålenhag’s work are also available for purchase.
