Andreas Englund’s Aging Superhero

Swedish artist Andreas Englund has created a series of paintings that examine what might happen if supers weren’t granted the gift of eternal youth, as we’re accustomed to seeing. They’re funny, and sometimes sweet, but awesome overall.

Obligatory artist’s statement:

“Humor 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.”

You can check out more of Englund’s work on his site, including a few more shots of our old friend here.
