Inept Superhero Illustrations
This unique series of paintings also fascinates me because Andreas Englund juxtaposes the central subject performing superhuman feats with him failing at simplistic tasks. We really get a sense of Englund's sense of humor by looking at his extensive and impressive collection of artistic creations.
Implications - Many artists are now choosing to paint in photorealistic styles as an exhibition of their technical skill, but also to demonstrate their independence from digital art tools commonly relied upon to enhance artwork. Consumers, similarly, are no longer fond of technology's intrusion on their everyday lives. Corporations may capitalize on this public mentality by offering wares that allow consumers to return to more traditional values.
