Social Awareness of Animals – The Art of BK Foxx
BK Foxx is a New York-based artist. She has murals throughout New York City. The show at Woodward Gallery is actually the first time BK Foxx’s work will be presented inside a gallery. Being very active on huge outdoor mural projects, her work is quite well-known, particularly among New York street art lovers. For the premiere gallery exhibition for street artist BK Foxx, she focuses on social awareness of animals. The Kingdom exhibition benefits the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) mission to conserve nature and to reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on earth. The word “animal” comes from the Latin “animalis” meaning having breath, having soul or living being. Among our many similar traits, animals contribute to human nature by sharing the commonality of communication. While our ability to communicate differs, it is clear we all do make our feelings known. BK Foxx paints the spectrum from house pets to wildlife with soulful realism expressing the docile nature of these animals.
While her urban murals are huge depictions of animals swimming, sitting, or reclining, the wildlife she brings into Woodward Gallery has an enormity, though not necessarily in scale. This gifted animal enthusiast conveys her broad expression of kinship urging the viewer to become one with the spirit of these beautiful creatures. BK Foxx exceptionally touches us humans with her paintings. She channels the attributes of animal species using spray paint, brush work and her longing to raise awareness for the importance and care of all life. The WWF fund for BK Foxx: Kingdom is open and accepting donations immediately for the full duration of the exhibition! In case you would like to donate, please visit the official website of Woodward Gallery.
