Ageing Superhero

I came across these photorealistic oil paintings called the ‘Aging Superhero’ by Swedish artist Andreas Englund. If fine art with a touch of humour is your thing you might like these. They take us into the humorous life of an anonymous elderly action figure who has probably seen better days. The character reminds me of the late great, Leslie Nielsen who was famous for his bumbling investigator roles in Police Squad and the Naked Gun series.

The moments captured are just excellent and the wear and tear of battling crime is clearly depicted in each piece. I particularly like the painting Planes where he takes a selfie on an old SLR camera whilst flying alongside some jets. Great!
