Heavenly Hummingbirds is an artwork made for 300 Limited Edition Courage My Love Legskins. Adorned with a tropical garden featuring both native and exotic fauna, Hummingbirds flap their wings in harmony whilst gathering nectar from flowers all around. Enhancing the wearer’s confidence and colourful outlook on life, the birds symbolise freedom and one’s sense of positive self image.
A graffiti artist with a fine art degree, Flox first made her mark in inner-city Auckland NZ, her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers magically transforming grey walls into vibrant depictions of the natural world. Now seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong, New York and Taiwan, the artist is certainly spreading her wings.
Flox’s stencils have over time, become more intricate and large scaled, 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.”
