Thrown into Oblivion: WAR Artist Andrée Wallin

The World Famous Wall Art Rockers are proud to showcase some of their artists, starting with Andrée Wallin:

Andrée has collaborated with Universal on the artwork for the recently released film Oblivion. A futuristic film, set in 2037, following an invasion by alien scavengers who destroyed the moon and nearly destroyed the Earth. It stars Tom Cruise as Jack Harper, one of the last humans left, who is tasked with extracting the last of earth's resources, especially water. His life unexpectedly changes after a space ship crashes......

The visuals of this stunning film and Andrée's work on the trailer poster give you a good idea of what we produce here at WAR.

Andrée had a love of drawing from an early age, he was the boy always huddled over his desk with a pencil and paper in his hand letting full reign to his vivid imagination. At 19 he stumbled across photoshop and found a medium he could explore, as he himself states he's lazy, not wanting to get into all the colour mixing and stuff. One of his artworks usually takes 2-3 days to complete, depending on the detail required.

Andrée (29) started his digital concept art career with RealtimeUK in 2008 and currently works for Radical Thinking. He freelances from his native Sweden, though he has also worked in house for companies. He has worked on major big name projects like Napoleon: Total War, Dirt 3 and Halo 4. This shows you the high calibre of his work and why we are proud to have him as a featured artist. 

He was first approached by WAR in 2010 with regards to him working with us, bringing his style to something other than canvas. His detailed digital artwork lends itself perfectly to being used on our giant widescreen acrylic pictures. He had never taken up any offers before but after seeing our product he quickly changed his mind.

His style is unequaled in detail and this isn't lost in anyway when we reproduce our giant wall art, keeping the integrity of the original design intact. One of our best selling pieces 'You and Me' is a perfect example of the clarity we can achieve, along with the emotion Andrée creates in his art.

You will find other examples of his work in our gallery, from 'Swamp Fever', a rather eery bayou picture, to the very Mass Effect looking 'Down Town' which would be a great addition to any gaming household or business..
