Sydney-born, New York residing artist Vexta is known for her intricate paintings and large scale street works which combine a fluid use of stencils and expressive hand painted elements. From the mid 2000s, Vexta’s street art began spreading across her dual home cities of Melbourne & Sydney before going on to spread across the globe. Since her early days of running around back laneways with a spray can, her work has developed into a dedicated studio practice creating paintings, assemblage sculptures and installations. Her psychedelic, neon-drenched images draw from a broad spectrum of cultural and visual debris and are heavily imbued with personal symbolism at the same time referring to a greater urban mythology. Suspended in time and space, the characters in Vexta’s work connect the dots between the personal and the universal; our waking lives and the dreams beneath them. A marriage of hard-edged cultural commentary and aching beauty.
