On Sunday the 3rd of March a flock of fab owls will be heading Auckland’s way! Over 100 super sized,super rad owls will be scattered around parks, public spaces, malls and libraries ready to be tracked down.

There are 47 giant owls (1.65m) that have been individually designed by Kiwi and International artists including yours truly! Some of the other incredible artists who have created owls include Dick Frizzell, Jeff Thomson, Flox, Peata Larkin, Wayne Youle, Anna Leyland, Weilun Ha and Grace Wright, along with some of New Zealand’s most exciting up and coming creatives. Joining the giant owls are 60 owlets (90cm) – many designed by Auckland school students.

Such a great way to keep the kids entertained – make sure you get involved by downloading the Big Hoot 2018 app from the app store or goole play from the 1st of March and collect rewards as you go.

The 47 giant owls, each a bespoke work of art, will be auctioned off to fundraise for Child Cancer Foundation on Tuesday 29 May in Auckland.

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.
