Jucy Snooze conversion to LyLo – Queenstown

X June 14, 2023

Our native Kea is a protected species that lives in forests and mountainous areas surrounding the Queenstown region and is valued by New Zealanders as an icon of the great outdoors.

Many other native birds in New Zealand are flightless, unlike the Kea which can fly very well, a sentiment to our own appreciation for international travel and desire to spread our wings.

Isolated for millions of years and with their heads in the clouds, an array of alpine flowers such as the Mountain Daisies and Buttercups, bloom and frame the bird demonstrating their wonderful adaptations to the extreme environment that is Queenstown. The Kea has recently been spotted in Christchurch and are spreading through the South Island of Aotearoa from Queenstown.

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.
