Felix Kelly, a New Zealander, came to England a few years before the Second World War. He joined the Royal Air Force in 1940, and had his first exhibition in 1943 at the Lefevre Galleries. His second exhibition came in 1944, again at the Lefevre Galleries and in 1946 he was to have his first one man show, in Scotland.
He was influenced by the British Landscape tradition. Some of his work differs little from the typical work of the eighteenth-century topographers, but Kelly includes pieces of poetry discovered by his imagination rather than by his recording eye. It is evident that he was influenced strongly by Dalí and de Chirico, but these influences did not overpower the expression of his own personal fantasy.
