FELIX ATKINSON


B. 1991

LIVES AND WORKS IN NAARM (MELBOURNE), AUSTRALIA

Born in Margaret River and raised in Thailand, Felix Atkinson is an artist living and working in Naarm/Melbourne. Felix’s figurative-based paintings are created through personal experience and informed by being with others in the world, capturing an emotional range that is not always definable yet intuitive and deeply felt. Felix has exhibited regularly since 2016, presenting solo exhibitions at galleries including SEVENTH, Tinning Street Presents, Rubicon ARI and Q Bank Gallery.

What is important for Felix is to create paintings that are honest, intimate, and deeply rooted in both the past and the present. For the hope that there is a degree of sensitivity contained within the paintings that allows space for the viewer to connect on whatever terms they feel. The memories you hold in your head, the ones you carry in your body. they are sometimes beautiful, sometimes painful, but always a reminder that you are alive on this earth and that you do exist.
