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. Over the last couple of years, Treadwell has been getting a lot of recognition and appreciation for the works depicting the semi-autobiographical character, Feelo. "It was just meant to be this protagonist which explores these worlds, but I think I worked it out that it is more meant to be me. It wasn't intentional but I think it kind of acts as me, but also acts like you, the viewer within the work. I feel like Feelo is more like an outsider entering this world in which you are, and exploring what you might not necessarily know you might encounter." 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.
His 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 participated as an artist in residence at the L21xCamper Foundation (2018). In recent years, his work has been shown in numerous group 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).
