Shipwrecked Festival

SWEATS and I were lucky enough this year to be a part of @shipwreckednz, an annual boutique music festival nestled between the coast and rural landscapes of Te Arai, north of Auckland.

Our six panel mural Electro Tropica was a mashup of our styles, remixing our love of nature and techno influences. The artwork was a perfect combo for a festival setting where music, dance and expression took place against a backdrop of beautiful natural landscapes.

No reception at this festival, so the crowds were PRESENT. No phones, just good old fashioned conversation and connection, my favourite part!

If you’re thinking of heading to a new festival next year, give this one a go for sure, we’ll defiantly be reoffending!

Special thanks to @shipwreckednz, Logan and Stace for making this all possible. We feel honoured to have contributed, thank you for inviting us into your festival whanau.

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.
