A SECRET SURPRISE!

X September 16, 2016

I was so inspired by the children at Badi Primary School that I decided to head back there with The Painted Peacock Project ladies and paint a surprise mural for them!

We were told that the kids were on holiday, so, with the go ahead from the teachers we set off from Udaipur on a top secret mission to paint the building. When we arrived the school was full!

At 4pm we returned and got stuck in!  Word must have got out because this paint ended up being even more crowded than The Painted Peacock Project Mural. It was also 30 degrees with no airflow and we completed the mural with lots of excitement and shouting from the kids spurring us on.

We were so pleased to be able to leave these kids with a colourful gift to say Thank you!

My Story

As an aerosol and stencil artist with a fine art degree, Flox has been making her mark on the inner cityscape of Auckland since 2003.

Her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers are a celebration of Aotearoa’s environmental taonga. Using distinctly vibrant and confident colour on a scale combined with delicacy they have 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 and workshops for both schools and the wider public. She has been involved in numerous collaborations, charity work and both group and solo exhibitions.

Her accessible narratives have broadened the appeal and shaped her into one of New Zealand’s most recognised contemporary artists.

In recent years Flox has focused on refining new ideas, exploring other cultures and pushing her own artistic boundaries. This resulted in a three-month Artist Residency in Taiwan and a journey to Udaipur in India, to expand her international audiences.

Seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong, New York, Taiwan, India and the US, Flox continues spreading her wings and making her presence felt across public spaces and homes worldwide.
