American artist Jaime Brett Treadwell was born and raised in a suburb of Philadelphia. He completed his undergraduate education at the State University of New York at Cortland, and earned his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania. His paintings combine classical Greek sculptures dispersed throughout spring break pool parties; or, his most recent works of geometric forms, discreetly suggest a high/low reference by mixingstreet art with Op Art.

Treadwell often uses vivid, synthetic colors to masquerade or obscure the realities within his paintings. His use of color helps to establish a world of fantasy and fiction, to enable viewers to enter a meditative state, escaping from reality and living in a new strange place.
