Vexta is recognized in the street art scene as one of the leading female artists. This has been evidenced by the support she has received from influential players such as Banksy, who invited her to show along side him in London at the 2008 Cans Festival, as well as being represented and credited in his highly successful film, Exit Through The Gift Shop. She was also recently a feature artist the inaugural Outpost Street Art Festival in Sydney Australia in 2012.
Integral to Vexta’s practice is bringing art to the people on the streets and as such she has generated a large following in Australia, Europe & the Americas. She is most famously known for her stencil paintings and wheat-pastes which draw from cultural visual debris, her self taught aesthetic and an ongoing exploration of printmaking and painting. These works have been seen on the streets of Paris, Sydney, Mexico City, Bogota, San Francisco and New York to name a few.
Her iconic psychedelic, neon drenched artworks are influenced by a personal symbolism and a greater urban mythology which connect the dots between the personal and the universal, our waking lives & the dreams beneath them, between acute cultural commentary and aching beauty.
She has work held in major collections, including The National Gallery of Australia and recently she was included in the definitive Thames & Hudson World of Art: Street Art & Graffiti book (2012) as one of only 4 female street artists.
