Yvette Vexta / / Tulum, Mexico
Vexta is a self-taught artist from Sydney Australia. With a background in Street Art beginning in the mid 2000s, her bold and extravagant artworks have invaded our visual landscape from Melbourne to Mexico and everywhere in between, from large-scale murals to gallery exhibitions, she is a nomad of our modern times.
Viewing the world through her psychedelic kaleidoscope, Vexta reinterprets the sacred elements within cosmology, mythology, life/death and the feminine, navigating these themes through the common threads that bind our experiences. Exploring the interconnectedness of all living things by juxtaposing animals, human forms and landscape amid her symbolic, geometric shapes drenched in her unique color palette, she provides an insight into our fundamental engagement with the human condition.
Her recent practice has grown to include soundscapes, animated projections and installations.
She has exhibited extensively across Australia, Europe and North America, including The National Gallery of Australia, Saatchi Gallery London, Banksy’s Cans Festival and has her work held in numerous public, academic and private collections globally. She also collaborates with clients such as Converse, Fabergé, Volcom, Juxtapoz, Adobe & Samsung. She currently spends her time based between New York USA & Tulum, Mexico.
“ The prominent women of the international street art scene — like Fafi, Miss Van, Olek, Maya Hayuk, Faith47, Swoon, Bambi, Sheryo, Vexta and Elle — have shown that claiming a corner of public space is a subversive, rebellious act.”
