Ladies who paint festival San Diego 2019

San Diego California, is home to many migratory bird species including the Least Tern, which sits with wings outstretched centre bottom in the artwork. Warming sea water is driving their food sources (anchovies) farther down into the ocean and making it harder for least terns to get hold of them; in addition, the anchovies are overfished and human development has eroded and destroyed much of the dunes they depended on, so it’s a tough fight.

The Messenger Trustme X Flox 2019

Navigation is one of the themes or ideas that universally figure across the world, across cultures and across generations. We all have stories of departure and arrival and negotiating the bit in-between. As a theme it occupies a central space within the concept of Tuia 250, the commemoration of the first interaction between Māori and Europeans, an interaction that took place through James Cook’s arrival to Aotearoa in the year 1769.

Riverton South Sea Spray Mural ‘The Crossing’ TrustMe X Flox 2019

The history of the Fouveaux Straight area features some of the first examples of intermarriage between Māori and Pākehā and signalled what could be considered the beginning of modern New Zealand society. Both names “Riverton” and “Aparima” can be seen incorporated and overlaid across the entire artwork, illustrating notions of diversity and inclusiveness.

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.
