Who Is BK Foxx?

BK Foxx is a New York-based artist who likes to create large-scale murals, working freehand with spray paint. Her murals can be found mostly throughout New York City.
BK Foxx also focuses on social awareness of animals which is why she often depicts them in her murals.

Here is a little bit of what she shared in an interview for Animal New York:

How did you get your name?
My initials are BK. And my little icon is a fox. With an extra “X” because “BKFox” was taken on Instagram (no joke.) My given name is allegedly from an ’80s sitcom.

Why do what you do?
Because I can. Because I speak better visually than verbally. And because nothing beats the feeling of standing next to people admiring the wall you painted while they have no idea you painted it.

Do you bring your smart phone into the bathroom with you? Why?
No. I try to leave my phone alone as much possible. Notifications can turn you into a lab rat on cocaine pawing at your screen.

Drugs or natural highs?
Mostly sugar.

    I love the murals. I wish I could paint like that. I use words to bring to life what I can’t paint.
