Andreas Wannerstedt is a viral 3D artist and art director based in Stockholm, Sweden. He reached popularity through his Instagram account in 2017.
His short looping animations have been described as “oddly satisfying” for their hypnotic and meditative character. They feature real-life objects with an abstract twist.
His style is characterized by the use of a colorful, low-saturated palette, playful geometric shapes, balanced compositions and natural materials, such as wood and marble.
After becoming fascinated with 2D animations during high school, in the late 1990s, Wannerstedt went on to study the subject at Hyper Island, a digital creative business school in Sweden.
He then started working with some of the biggest companies in the field and moved to LA.
In LA, Wannerstedt came across 3D animations for the first time and decided to learn more about them on his own.
He reached popularity in 2017 after posting some 3D work and passion projects on his Instagram page.
During the past decade, he has been commissioned by brands like Google, Adidas, Ikea, Coca-Cola, Spotify, Absolut Vodka, Red Bull, etc.
He believes that sharing his art can make a strong impact in the digital age, providing some relaxation within the social media world.
