The Story Of Flox – Artist Bio

An aerosol and stencil artist with a fine art degree, Flox first made her mark on the inner cityscape of Auckland in 2003. Her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers – a celebration of Aotearoa’s environmental taongavibrant, confident colour; and scale combined with delicacy; magically transformed grey walls into vibrant depictions of the natural world.

Flox swiftly expanded her practice into prints, publications, murals, graphic design, live painting, projects, workshops for both school and the wider public, collaborations, charity work and both group and solo exhibitions. Her accessible narratives have broadened her appeal and shaped her into one of New Zealand’s most recognised contemporary artists. Numerous TV guest appearances and editorials have added to her popularity and further spurred the demand for her distinctive aesthetic.

Flox’s intricately hand-cut stencils are what sets her apart from the rest, prompting a demand for these as artworks in their own right. With a philosophy deeply ingrained in the value of the hand-made, her processes pay homage to the craft of the cut – what she refers to as her Labour of Love.

In recent years Flox has focused on honing new ideas, exploring other cultures and pushing her own artistic boundaries. This has resulted in a three month Artist Residency in Taiwan and a journey to Udaipur in India, to again expand her international audiences.
Seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong, New York, Taiwan, India and the US, Flox continues spreading her wings.

The stuff that I’ve been doing lately with TrustMe is particularly rewarding, exhausting, fulfilling and time consuming. This piece is about navigation – check out the full artist statement and pics here.

Happy first birthday Gather Magazine! I was featured as part of their b-day celebrations with a bunch of other bad-ass babes.

Working outside on murals means I’m serious about my skincare and this ticks all the boxes: 100% organic, vegan, cruelty-free and NZ made. I definitely give them some major Flox props.
