Edina Tokodi is a Hungarian artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and uses plant material to create urban murals throughout the city.

By incorporating plant life and other materials found in the local natural environment with photos or graphic elements, Edina’s installation works dissolve the barriers between private and public space, between the organic and inorganic elements of the urban landscape, and between nature and art. Her work advocates sustainable living and draws attention to the deficiency of nature in daily life.

Transferring her public sculptural installations from street to gallery settings highlights the idea that fine art need no longer be limited by white-box confines – that instead, we might embrace a new art-viewing environ. In turn, this underscores the understanding that “street art” need not be limited to outdoor space or temporary relevance.

Edina will participate in the Breckenridge International Festival of Arts (BIFA) with new site-specific works from Aug 10–19, 2018.
