Felix Treadwell is aware of the vast and powerful world we exist in. In his paintings, teenage characters and aliens are confronted with a sense of danger – in which they encounter mystical beings and feel guilty for something terrible, yet still go ahead in doing it anyway. The result is a mystical blend of “cute” and “dark” in which vulnerable and youthful characters tap through the different stages of adolescence life.
Felix (b. UK) lives and works in Taipei. He graduated with an MA in Painting from Royal College of Art in 2018, having previously completed his BA in Painting at Camberwell College of Arts (2012-2015). Recent exhibitions and projects include: FEELO (Solo Exhibition) at L21 Gallery (Palma, 2020), Little Dark Fantasy (Solo Exhibition) at Union Gallery (London, 2019), Community (Solo Exhibition) at LTD Los Angeles (Los Angeles, 2019), San Damiano Sessions (Group Exhibition) at Carl Kostyal (Milan, 2021), DONTGIVEADAMNS (Group Exhibition) at Gallerie Marian Cramer (Amsterdam, 2020), 2x2x2 (Group Exhibition) at imlabor (Tokyo, 2020), ADIEU TO OLD ENGLAND, THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT (Group Exhibition) at Choi&Lager Gallery (Cologne, 2019).
