Ageing Superhero is a series of hyper-realistic oil paintings by Swedish artist Andreas Englund that takes a candid, tongue-in-cheek look at the imaginary life of a superhero who is in his twilight years. In his series of canvases, Englund captures his subject dealing with the old age, but still, fighting a good fight for justice. Englund’s work is focused on the maturing process, believing that even in old age, it is still possible to achieve something valuable although someone’s drive and vigour won’t bluster out explosively. Nevertheless everybody in his advanced age deserves to be recognised and respected for what he has achieved in life.
