Vexta’s Vector

Glider by VextaVexta’s work is mostly human portraiture. Some of her work has been purchased by the National Gallery of Australia. She was born in 1980 and has a background in print-making. You can see examples of her work on her website.

According to a page on Wikipedia: Vexta’s motivation for stencil art is both artistic and sociopolitical. She has been documented as saying:

“I don’t want to live in a city that’s really bland and covered in grey and brown and advertising. I never said it was OK to put a billboard on the top of Brunswick Street, so who’s to say that I can’t put up a small A4 size image in a back laneway?”.

Her main aim in her work is to connect with the public on an emotional level:

Blender Alley 1-125 by VextaI want to find and capture what it is that makes us human, the soul of the individual that is at once personal but at the same time deeply universal“.
