Andreas Englund

            Mini Interview with ANDREAS ENGLUND: Your childhood ambition: When I was a kid I wanted to be a computer engineer cause they made the most money (I thought). But back then I also loved making drawings that told stories and that ambition never died. Something you treasure: I try to treasure the small things in life case that’s what life mostly is about. Like going to the movies. Playing with my daughter or eating dinner with the ones I cherish. Your worst habit: I’m a time optimist. I’m not late (I hate that) but I’m always in a hurry. The aspect of your work that’s most important to you: I get inspired when I have to rethink something I thought was obvious. When stereotypes are challenged and I find an alternative to mainstream. I try to post those thoughts through my work—to inspire others. Your first job: My first summer job I was working at a sausage factory. Someone whose work you highly recommend: I can name people who have inspired me and fascinated me: Banksy, Jesper Waldersten, Simon Bisley, Howard Schatz, Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle and Peter F. Hamilton.   View Andres Englund’s artwork here.
