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, typographic and illustrative pieces.

From our everyday experience of our three dimensional world to that of the dreamscape beyond the five senses, it is my artistic mission to consider the human experience on many different levels –  as we exist in relation to the natural environment, to each other within societal structures, and to the subtler aspects of self that relate to our higher order of being.  What are the fundamental beliefs that shape our world lens, fuel our imagination, and spark our empathetic reflex? 

 

The evolution of my creative output over time has seen themes of sustainability, socio-cultural awareness, and the intersection of science and spirituality become increasingly pivotal to my work as an artist.

 

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