About Yvette Vexta

Better known by her nom de plume 'Vexta' is an autodidactic multidisciplinary artist from Sydney, Australia who is based in New York, USA.

Her career started in Melbourne in the mid 2000s, as one of the first female street artists of the Street Art & Graffiti Movemnt. Her artwork has evolved since her illegal graffiti days into her uniquely bold and colorful aesthetic, aimed through a psychedelic lens to investigate our connection to the natural world. Though this lens she explores themes of mythology, cosmology & consciousness whilst keeping her feet firmly rooted in deep ecology. Exploring the personal within universal mythopoetic archetypes, her work often enmeshes figurative forms amid her symbolic, geometric shapes with floral, fungi and coral pattern on the macro and micro level. 

Vexta's work in her time here on earth seeks to provide an insight into our fundamental engagement with the modern human condition as connected / disconnected to the natural world, and thus our own inner selves.

 

Her practice has grown from murals and paintings to hosting events, immersive experiences, digital art as well as practicing as a Transformative Coach with a focus on Plant Medicine. 

 

She collaborates with a diverse range of commerical clients such as Converse, Lollapalooza & Governors Ball Music Festival, Fabergé, Urban Decay, Sportsgirl, Juxtapoz Magazine & Samsung. Most days she can be found working out of her studio on the 69th floor of prestigious Worth Trade Center in New York City as an Artist in Residence. When she is not in the studio she can be found out in nature, meditating or cooking delicious meals for her friends.
