‘Trapped’ A Special Mini-Show from Super A | July 3 – July 10 at Thinkspace

Special mini-show from Super A (aka Stefan Thelen)
On view July 3 – July 10, 2021 in Gallery II

Special U.S. launch of his new ’Trapped’ book (limited qty. / 90 signed copies for the States)

+ “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?” limited edition fine art print (Ed. of 100 standard + 50 deluxe size)

‘Trapped’ is an overview of all Super-A’s work made for the “trapped” series he started working on over 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 (Galerie Droste) and Andrew Hosner (Thinkspace Project). For the design we worked together with SYB who is a well known book designer, he added some crazy features like fold-outs, laser cut pages and a 95 x 63 cm fold out poster. To bring this crazy design to life we worked together with Lithographer Sebastiaan Hanekroot, printer Jos Morree Fine Books and professional bookbinder Wytze Fopma .

Super A short bio:
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.
