Dunedin Street Art Trail


Although considered Aotearoa’s smallest bird, the Titipounamu is adaptable, and constantly on the move, a nod to the nomadic Kai Tahu people of Ōtepoti, but also the diverse South Dunedin communities of today. A resilient species around since Gondwana times, the three birds in flight make reference to the idea of South Dunedin and it’s ever shifting tides of change, from a geographical and social viewpoint.

As an acknowledgment to “industry” and the early 19th century tin smith John Eustace, we have included a paint can lid (bottom right) textural paint elements and drips, while blue water-like swirls move across the artwork representing South Dunedin’s origins as a wetland, and the three creeks that now run through the region.

A colourful burst of energy and colour is captured through the use of chrysanthemum flowers. This element pays respect to the early Chinese roots of the district. In Chinese culture, the chrysanthemum symbolises longevity – an appropriate link to the ever changing shape of the communities and landscapes of South Dunedin.

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.
