Felix Treadwell paints with a tangible nostalgia for his youth. Human figures, fantasy creatures, animals and dinosaurs are all rendered in soft, pastel-hued gradients which combine airbrushing with hand-painted acrylic elements. Painted in a deliberately muted, gentle palette, his characters move through vacant space, divorced from any specific place or time, their clothing the only signifiers in the compositions. Much like artists associated with the Superflat movement, such as Lo Chiao-ling and Yoshitomo Nara, Treadwell draws inspiration from manga and anime alongside traditional Japanese printmaking and woodcarving.
