Synthesis Of Form And Thought

Working under the nom de plume “Cheeky Observer”, Alicia McFadzean is a contemporary artist attempting to craft a visual magic in each of her creations. Alicia works with acrylic, aerosols, ink and digital media to produce large scale murals, fine art and hand lettered pieces.

I approach my art practice through the lens of wanting to unpack what lies beyond the surface of our seemingly three dimensional experience, pulling on the energies, nuances and information streams which underpin our interpretation of the world. Within this framework the I find the real and the fantastical colliding; science and spirituality intersecting; dualisms dissolving. 

‘Magical’ in flavour, my creative output is a mix of realism and abstraction that always considers the audience. Above all, I want my work to be easily accessed and interpreted. As such I love to work in urban spaces and community environments.

Commercially, I offer artistic solutions to disruptive brands, start-ups, businesses and individuals who are making a conscious effort to improve our world.
