An Ode to Hinewai 2019

This artwork pays homage to the efforts being made in New Zealand around forrest restoration, and in particular at Hinewai Reserve.  Hinewai is an ecological restoration project on the Banks Peninsula, privately owned but freely open to the public on foot. www.hinewai.org.nz

One of the people behind this project who indeed needs a shout out is Hugh Wilson. He features in the work (up in the clouds, softly looking over us all with a big smile).

Working with both Warren Begley (local eco warrior and owner of the wall) and Hugh Wilson himself, Flox tapped into these advocate’s brains, ensuring a cohesive and thought provoking mural, encapsulating the marvellous diversity that is Hinewai.

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.
