Hayley King's recent work explores a perceived prejudice againstthe traditions of decorative art - that decorative work or forms designed with repetition or function in mind are somehow illegitimate. By disconnecting ornamental forms from the irrepetitive or purely decorative nature and allowing these forms to function as singular emblems, King creates works that emphasise and actively exaggerate the pervasive effect that everyday patterns and motifs have on popular culture.
Born in 1979, King attended Auckland's Unitec, graduating in 2003 with a Bachelor of Design majoring in Painting.
King is the driving force behind Flox Design, under whose moniker she is also responsible for a number of public graffiti installations alongside artists like Trustme and Component in the Cut Collective.
