I am delighted to reveal my third collaboration with BLUNT Umbrellas.

This collab extends my practice of highlighting distinct and often rare or endangered flora and fauna from around the world. By creating an artwork that intertwines aspects of both Australian bird and botanicals with those from Aotearoa New Zealand, I present this piece as a tribute to the environmental taonga and treasures of Oceania.

BLUNT Umbrellas have taken a very traditional product by combining superior engineering with beautiful design, giving us the BLUNT umbrella. The unique patented and trademarked BluntTM shape, formed by the technology within, is the only umbrella on the market with a fully tensioned canopy for unparalleled performance. BLUNT Umbrellas are made for extremes – wind tested in winds of up to 113km/h. The BLUNT Umbrella is a perfect blend of form and function and is made to be the only umbrella you’ll ever need – reducing the millions of umbrellas ending up in landfill each year. BLUNT have built themselves as not only a uniquely functional product, but a fashion forward style icon – having partnered with NZ and AU designers such as Karen Walker, Dick Frizzell, Rone and Misery to produce beautiful collabs.

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.
