Cheeky Observer is the pseudonym for Alicia McFadzean – a Sydney based artist and illustrator, working under the alias “Cheeky Observer”.
“My work is grounded within the notion of storytelling, and the dynamic relationship human beings have with each other and with their natural surroundings.
Characteristically fluid, I like to focus on lines to create movement, and to weave a slightly dark, fantastical spin around my subject matter. I’m fascinated by lettering and typography; how the integration of different words or manipulated letter forms can add another different layer of complexity or meaning to the final product.
Working across a broad range of media, and both on small and large scales, every piece I create strives to stimulate thought, or inspire a tickle of emotion somewhere, in someone. My inspiration comes from a dynamic array of sources – mythology, fairytales, contemporary forms of street art, the natural environment, and most importantly, the human self.”
