Collection: Andreas Englund

A recurring theme in Andreas Englund's work is about challenging stereotypes. Most famous is his depiction of the everyday life of an anonymous superhero. The series spans from the superhero's first mission as a young child to being an old man still struggling with everyday trivialities. "We don't want to be judged based on harmful and false preconceptions based on gender, age or physical appearance. Instead, we want to be recognized on our own personal qualities, achievements and abilities.
Some stereotypes are called good and desirable, some stereotypes are called bad or degrading. But mostly: stereotypes are boring! There is nothing more uninteresting than a happy person living a perfect life for example. And that's why it will always be more interesting to break down stereotypes and challenge preconceived notions than to accept them. "
