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.
