Philadelphia artist Jaime Treadwell’s Vivid Utopian Paintings

Philadelphia artist Jaime Treadwell depicts vividly patterned and brightly colored utopian environments in his paintings. These are gypsy-like party communities filled with dancing figures surrounded by unusual urban motifs bursting with geometrical confetti like forms. These figures appear to be disconnected from society and self sufficiently blissful in their detached nomadic habitats. See more of his work and some studio images after the jump.

Each piece is jam packed with symbolism from the religious blue statues and white swans to more common urban elements like beach balls. – Jane Kenoyer
