Stefan Thelen’s anti-superhero identity Super A is a Dutch artist who uses traditional painting technique and a knack for design to create compositions that manipulate familiar iconography into mind-bending and inquisitive pieces. His alter-ego, Super A is the filter with which the life and observations of Stefan Thelen are distilled down and turn into inspiration. All of his work evolves out of personal experiences or thoughts that grow into concepts which tightrope between fiction and nonfiction. Super A is a mystery that leans on the art doing most of the talking for Stefan Thelen, taking the viewer into a wonderland walking down a yellow brick road in which Thelen’s figurative and modern surrealist compositions are providing playful puzzles to decipher.
Trapped is an overview of all Super A's work made for the “trapped” series he started working on 3 years ago. This hand-bound book contains of photo’s of all the paintings, the murals, work in progress pictures and text by Katharina Gallade and Andrew Hosner. For the design we worked together with SYB who is a well known book designer, he added some crazy features like fold-outs, lasered pages and a 95 x 63 cm poster. To bring this crazy design to life we worked together with Lithographer Sebastian Hanekroot, printer Jos Morree Fine Books and professional bookbinder Wytze Fopma.
