Painted Boxes: Flox, TrustMe

This box is at the corner of Great North Road and View Road, Glendene (map). It shows pohutukawa blossom and other vegetation, and most conspicuously the tui.

The box is signed “Flox Trust Me”. Flox is a pseudonym for renowned stencil artist and designer Hayley King, and Trust Me (Ross Liew in real life) is a respected name in street art circles, some time ago he featured in a TV news item on murals. Pohutukawa blossom provide the nectar for the tui birds. Quite a number of these unmistakable stencil works are found from Titirangi through Henderson, and Flox’s art has also appeared on a range of billboards.

As I checked the details out for this post, I saw that Flox is having a massive fashion sale from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in St Kevin’s Arcade, Karangahape Road on Thursday, 15 April, i.e. tomorrow evening – one night only. Be there! (My complimentary plug… check her website.)
