Portraits of an Elderly Superhero by Andreas Englund

Swedish artist Andreas Englund humorously imagines what a superhero’s life in his golden years would be like in his artwork series of oil on canvas portraits. The series was displayed most recently at Stockholm’s Lydmar Hotel in Summer 2011.

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.
