Arrested Motion http://arrestedmotion.com "the aim of every artist is to arrest motion..." -Faulkner Wed, 29 Jul 2015 05:57:13 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1 Streets: Andreas Englund for Wall\Therapy (Rochester) http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/07/streets-andreas-englund-for-walltherapy-rochester/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/07/streets-andreas-englund-for-walltherapy-rochester/#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 05:55:08 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=281113 11760285_672264246243224_8621909835784233973_n

Back in 2011, we did Art Focus feature on Andreas Englund, introducing our readers to his imagery of the everyday life of superheroes and the comedy that ensues when dealing with common situations that happen to us mortals. Fast forward five years and we can see that he just completed a mural for the Wall\Therapy event in Rochester, New York, only his second public wall painted ever. Transferring his character to the large scale, the Swedish artist handles the dimensionality of the piece perfectly. Give this man more walls! Photo credit: Jason Wilder, Tomas Flint, and the artist. Discuss Andreas Englund here.]]>
