Flox X TrustMe

Collaboration is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organisational objectives. It is the fuel that allows individuals to attain uncommon results.

It was with this vision that a growing seed began for Ross Liew aka TrustMe and Hayley King aka FLOX. With more than 30 years experience collectively, both artists made the move to team up and approach the big wall projects in unison.

The collaboration began late 2018, and now with a growing number of outdoor murals in their collective portfolio, they have seamlessly composed a fresh new aesthetic, combining aspects from both artists’ skill sets and styles. From the early beginnings of a project through to final execution, their collective approach encompasses a philosophy of creating work that is site specific and concept driven, further enhancing their focus in bringing communities together.

Flox’s trademark native birds, ferns and flowers interweave with TrustMe’s confident overlays and bold descriptive text forms. This combination of both delicacy, scale and attention to colour contributes to a distinctly cohesive transformation of grey walls into vibrant depictions of both the natural world and contemporary discourse.

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.
