Simon Stålenhag’s paintings draw you into a bizarre alternate reality, where robots and dinosaurs make the Swedish countryside their home. These hyper real acrylic scenes are mesmerizing and disturbing and just plain fantastic.

Simon is based in the countryside of Stockholm which explains his fascinating landscapes. His work has been featured in many international publications and book covers and he was responsible for the amazing background animation scenes in the Oscar award winning documentary, Searching for Sugarman.

Stålenhag is also one half of the game developer duo Pixeltruss. Simon and partner, Tommy Salomonsson recently launched Ripple Dot Zero, an amazing 90s inspired 16-bit game which is available to play for free at http://www.rippledotzero.com
