Felix Treadwell was born in Maidstone, England in 1992. Treadwell studied art at Camberwell College of Arts, and later specialized in painting at the Royal College of Art, where he graduated in 2018. His practice deals with the implications that internet culture has in today’s young generations, and the way it has reshaped the interactions and relationships between the East and West. In his paintings, he often employs fictional characters who perform everyday actions, having got a lot of recognition over the last years for the works depicting the semi-autobiographical character, Feelo. Through the use of simple compositions, playful, non- threatening scenes, and the softness of the airbrush, along with pastel hues, the artist is reviving and visualizing his childhood imagination in his practice.
Solo exhibitions include ‘Dominion’, Dopeness (Taipei, 2021); ‘FEELO’, L21 Gallery (Palma de Mallorca, 2020); ‘Little Dark Fantasy’, Union Gallery (London, 2019); ‘Community’, LTD Los Angeles (Los Angeles, 2019); and ‘Dark Age’, L21 Gallery (Palma de Mallorca, 2018). He has received awards such as the HIX Award (2014) and has participated as an artist in residency at the L21xCamper Foundation (2018). In recent years, his work has been shown collectively in numerous venues such as Primary Projects (Miami, 2021); Gallerie Marian Cramer (Amsterdam, 2020); imlabor (Tokyo, 2020); Choi & Lager Gallery (Cologne, 2019) Tatjana Pieters Gallery (Gent, 2019) and Galleria Patricia Armocida (Milan, 2019).
