LYLO hotel

X September 27, 2022

Client: Designworks

I was honoured to be a part of the hot new enviro-conscious Lylo accomodation in central Auckland, creating this impact piece for their hotel foyer.

The Lylo ethos is based around minimising waste, utilising conservation initiatives and just generally touching the earth lightly.

Paying homage to mother earth and our relationship with nature, two Korimako (Bellbirds) perch amongst an abundance of native Kotukutuku, Pohutukawa and Puriri, (all widespread botanicals of the Auckland region) and interact with each other and our native flora.  Demonstrating a mutualistic relationship with our trees, flowers and shrubs, Korimako play an important role in pollinating flowers, dispersing seeds and regenerating forests.

The artwork, while set within an urban environment is an enchanting reminder of Auckland’s natural beauty.

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.
