Street Games by Andreas Englund

If you’re not familiar with Swedish artist Andreas Englund’s photo-realistic oil paintings, you should be, as they are truly amazing. A reoccurring theme in Andreas’ work is about challenging stereotypes. Mostly recognized is his depicting of 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.

“We don’t want to be judged on harmful and false preconceptions based on gender, age or physical appearance. Instead we want to be recognized on our own personal traits, accomplishments and abilities. Some stereotypes are referred to as good and desirable, some stereotypes are referred to as bad or degrading. But mostly: stereotypes are boring! There’s nothing more uninteresting than a happy person living a perfect life for instance. And that’s why breaking down stereotypes and challenging preconceptions will always be more interesting than to accept them.” – Andreas Englund
