Are you alright?
Yeah i’m okay thanks.
What do you love?
What I love most, is to disconnect myself through reading, watching, listening or creating art/media. This could be through books, manga/comics, films, music or painting and drawing. I love things that remind me or take me back to my childhood, where I felt happy and secure. This is why you can see a lot of child-like/manga influences in my work.
What do you hate?
I hate aggressive people and violence I can’t stand either.
What are you listening to right now?
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - Mottai-Nightland
Its always on the radio here, kinda hypnotising.
Tell me what you do.
I am doing a Fine Art painting degree in London at Camberwell College of Arts, UAL. I’m currently on an exchange in Kyoto Japan though, as a lot of my work has influences from Japanese artists/media. To be able to create work here is really wonderful.

NU art: Felix Treadwell

Felix Treadwell is a young British painter heavily influenced by Japanese culture. His work reflects a darker, very British take on Takashi Murakami’s super flat movement. Through sharing a studio with Felix, I have seen him countlessly reworking his paintings, slowly making them more gritty and abstract. That’s not to say he doesn’t work quickly, it’s more than likely for Felix to finish almost all of his paintings in a day or less. For example, in such paintings as “Oh no” he would constantly be reworking over what he had previously done, adding layer upon layer of ink washes and pale acrylic abstract figures. By continuously adding layer upon layer the painting creates a sense of mystery where the viewer is intrigued to look deeper into the painting, to understand all of the different layers of the piece.

Felix’s use of ink seems to add an illustrative quality to his work, yet the use of paint in an abstract style is something that takes him quite far from Takashi Murakami’s super flat paintings and to me seems to have drawn influence from painters such as St. Ives abstractionist Roger Hilton or even early Hockney. In more recent works such as “Birthday Party” Felix has started to incorporate more colour into his pieces juxtaposing the harsh black ink of cartoonish figures that are apparent within his work with areas of flat sharp colours. In this piece he paints a scene of chaos at a child’s birthday party, with distorted figures smoking cigarettes and wearing party hats. The figures look almost like ghosts, frantic and excited, and, when speaking to Felix, he described the painting as his experience of primary school, utter chaos.    

Felix has now moved to Koyto, Japan on placement, I just wonder what he will bring back to the UK and if he will still think the same way about the art scene both here and there after experiencing them both first hand.
