Felix Treadwell's artwork is infused with a palpable nostalgia for his youth. He skillfully brings human figures, fantasy creatures, animals, and dinosaurs to life using soft, pastel-hued gradients that blend airbrushing with hand-painted acrylic elements. In addition to these gentle color palettes, Treadwell explores more saturated tones, employing various artistic mediums such as pencil and crayon sketches, fibreglass sculptures, and oil stick drawings. Similar to artists associated with the Superflat movement like Lo Chiao-ling and Yoshitomo Nara, Treadwell draws inspiration from manga, anime, traditional Japanese printmaking, and woodcarving. Alongside these influences, he finds creative fuel in the fashion blogs of the 2000s. The combination of these artistic references conveys a sense of sentimentality shared by many millennials who experienced the dawn of the internet era.
The artwork on offer is one of Treadwell's most notable paintings, "Yoga" from 2019. This iconic work narrates a story of personal growth and coming-of-age. This particular artwork portrays the iconic face of his character, layered one above the other, representing an evolution of identity. With a blend of thoughtfulness and subtle humor, Treadwell delves into the tumultuous and tender journey of self-discovery. Through his art, he prompts viewers to reflect on the transformative process of becoming one's true self, capturing the complexity and beauty of the human experience.
