Felix Treadwell

     B. 1992 UK. Lives and works in Taipei.

    Felix Treadwell was born in Maidstone, England in 1992. In his painting he often uses fictional characters who perform everyday actions. Treadwell studied art at Camberwell College of Arts and later specialised in painting at the Royal College of Art, where he graduated in 2018.

    He has received awards such as the HIX Award (2014) and participated as an artist in residence at the L21xCamper Foundation (2018). In recent years, his work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions such as “Good Good, Double Good”, Lewisham Art House (London, 2017), “Hand Luggage”, Pierre Pourmet (Bordeaux, 2018), “Fatal Attraction”, Thames-Side Studios, (London, 2018) or “There’s Something About Painting”, Tatjana Pieters Gallery, (Gent, 2019).

       FEELO is the name of the character I've been working on over the past year, a nickname I used to have at school. The inspiration behind FEELO’s style is from looking at fashion blogs to hypebeast kids and to even myself and a teenager and the nickname felt fitting for them. Instead of looking at the world as a whole, I've wanted to focus on this new single character for this show, detailing aspects of their day to day life expressing it through their style and look. --Felix Treadwell
