Alternate Sweden

Artist Simon Stålenhag has created a series of works that blend the fantastic with the mundane. Children play in the shadows of monolithic structures and stare at the remains of a defunct particle collider while dinosaurs saunter past robots rusting in the fields. Thoughtful and quietly compelling. the art effectively blurs the line between fantasy and reality. Visit The Verge for a short article about the works and Simon's website for more art

  1. Oh wow, that is fantastic! I love the concept of taking a very mundane setting and inserting sci-fi or fantasy elements! It is my favorite type of painting, so thank you so much for mentioning this artist!! :)
