ARTIST SERIES

The team at Living With Jack is made up of creatives who express their art and beliefs through the products that they build. A big reason that we do what we do, is because it allows us to collaborate with other talented creatives. We felt that our products would work well as a canvas for artwork so we reached out to graffiti artist Flox. She is an incredible artist and we have loved working with her on this project.

THE STORY OF FLOX

A graffiti artist with a fine art degree, Flox first made her mark in inner-city Auckland, her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers magically transforming grey walls into vibrant depictions of the natural world. 

Flox swiftly spread her wings, expanding into prints, murals, graphic design, live painting, projects, workshops, charity work and exhibitions, broadening her appeal and shaping her into one of New Zealand’s most recognised spray paint artists.  Numerous TV guest appearances and editorials have added to her popularity and further spurred the demand for her distinctive aesthetic. 

Flox’s intricately hand-cut stencils are what sets her a part form the rest, prompting a demand for these as artworks in their own right.  Meticulous and hands-on is the philosophy behind all the art making, paying homage to the craft of the cut, and what she calls her “labour of love.”

In 2015 a three month residency took Flox to the streets of Taipei, painting both publicly and showcasing the work in artist talks, public artworks, exhibitions and her first international workshop.  Now seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong, New York and Taiwan, the artist is certainly spreading her wings.
