Vexta – Mexico City Video

Late in 2013, VEXTA headed to Mexico City as part of her ongoing, global Neon Tour adventure. Her original travels there in 2012 had left her with an insatiable desire to return to paint a multi story piece in the centre of the creative neighbourhood of Mexico city, Condesa / Roma. We would like to share with you how this homage to the mesmerizing shapes and intense energy of the city and its’ people unfolded.

Special thanks to Converse & GraffitiWorld.tv, who supported the project and to Monica LoCascio, Bailey Rebecca Roberts, Bronsoon and all the wonderful people of Mexico City.

Vexta – Kochi – India

This documents the creation of a series of site-specific public street paintings, which flow through from Mattancheery to Fort Kochi. Each piece contains a thematic narrative which can be read in any order.

The paintings build on themes Vexta has been exploring in her work for some time. Conceptually her work explores themes of metamorphosis, transcendence and our interconnectedness with the surrounding environment, through the creation of contemporary, secular works which play with ideas of life /death and the feminine experience.

Travel and the creation of site specific work that reflects the locations that they are made are important in Vexta’s practice and her response to the environment plays a significant part in the process of conceptual development.
