Jucy Snooze conversion to LyLo – Christchurch

X June 14, 2023

Found only in beech-clad valleys near Arthur’s Pass and Lake Sumner in the Canterbury region, New Zealand’s Native Kākāriki parrots are one of our most threatened.  Thanks to local conservation efforts in Christchurch however, these brightly coloured birds have been brought back from the brink of extinction, not just once, but twice.  Against all odds, these beautiful green feathered birds, flutter amongst native flora and fauna of Mahoe, Nikau and Tussock Ringlet Butterflies, symbolising a sense of resilience and strength while paying homage to the natural and unique eco systems of the Canterbury region.

LyLo.  The new way to stay.  

Finding somewhere to stay shouldn’t be so hard.  That’s why we’ve created a place where everything’s easy and life’s good. Where you can lie low and chill after a big day (or night) living it up.  Where you can let loose or lounge around.  Lie back or live it up. Work or play or do absolutely nada.  Whatever your vibe, life’s good at LyLo.   https://lylo.com

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.
