FLUX Exhibition is London’s leading exhibition to discover the most talented, dynamic painters, sculptors and performance artists.

FLUX has established itself as the platform for contemporary artists to be discovered and to be part of an exceptional, inspirational art event. Hosted by Chelsea College of Arts in London and curated by Lisa Gray, the founder of FLUX, this fifth, much anticipated edition brings 100 artists to the fore. Gray has hand selected the very best emerging and established artists for a five-day event.

FLUX opening party comes alive with musical guests, performance art and site specific installations which complement the work and bring a new experimental approach to the exhibition.

The show represents an opportunity to gain access to a vast and diverse group of gifted artists, on the path to being the big names of tomorrow, showcasing international talent in a collaborative, inclusive show. FLUX celebrates artists on the precipice of wider accolade and fame.

The exhibition will also be featuring the unique, Mini-Masterpieces where smaller artworks by FLUX artists can be purchased for £300 or less. A great way for a new collector to invest in art at a fraction of the price of artists’ normal sized works.

To celebrate this fifth and most ambitious edition FLUX will be giving away a limited edition artwork by Marcus Jake worth  £300 to those who purchase artwork.

Artists Include:

Marek Emczek Olszewski was born in Poland in 1981 and has been living and working in London since 2006. He is attracted to non-obviousness, light and shadow play, movement, reflection, geometry and extreme minimalism and is a member of Free Painters and Sculptors collective.  His work has been featured and bought by some of the world’s leading architects and interior designers, including Candy & Candy and a high profile commission for Qatari Headquarters in London’s Mayfair.

Iva Troj a contemporary Art Excellence Artist of The Year 2016 and 2013 Towry Best of East England Award Winner, Iva Troj seamlessly incorporates her vast experience of traditional painting techniques with postmodern elements to create engaging and stunningly detailed works that challenge the notion of societal conformity. Knowledge of traditional art techniques was first inspired by the necessity to fit within Cold War aesthetics of social realism. Alongside this, however, lay an acute perception of the reality existent beneath external structures.

Tomas Harker is an emerging artist featured in collections worldwide and garnering increasing international interest. He has previously been included in an exhibition at the Tate Modern, London and has recently had two hugely successful solo shows. He has received recognition from esteemed critic the late Brian Sewell and gained glowing appraisals from many publications such as Vogue Magazine.

Sally Buchanan  is a London-based Multimedia Artist. Her work is original, individual and eclectic, she combines conceptual principles with meticulous craft and a dash of wit to make installations, sculptures, embroideries and land art. She achieved early success with her challenging and eerie multiple self-portraits as psychological boxes and her trompe l’oeil sculpture Still Life Futures 1.  Other “Art experiments” included attempts to integrate the self with a literal embodiment of truth to materials where she used her own body as a template and traced out the remnants of her own previous presence. At Byam Shaw she embraced access to all the technical studios and through intensive making questioned her own actuality. She graduated from Central St Martins in 2007

The words….

‘Such a shame FLUX is over.  That was an amazing and powerful exhibition and that’s all thanks to London’s Art Queen Lisa Gray thank you so much and can’t wait for the next one!’  Kris Cieslak

‘Great opening night at the FLUX Exhibition last night, tons of fabulous work and great to meet so many lovely people! Well done Lisa Gray for curating and organising such a tremendous show, have not been to opening night like that in a very long time! Bravo!!!’  Mason Storm

‘Who could have though or dreamed or anticipated what has happened.  Out of Lisa’s creative will has come a unique idea.  An eye gazing out to the busy world, calling upon artists both young and not so young, saying “I have an idea, a venue, a home that will embrace bright colour, bright visions, both edgy and serene.  It wont be the first, and in time to come you’ll find more surprises!”  For her ideas are growing in strength it seems.  Prepare?  Indeed, prepare your panels, your canvases, your castings and your artful performances, your glass, your clay and find and even better company grown in vision a few short months away.’ Gordon M Scott

‘Fantastic event.  Fantastic talent.  Fantastic people.  It blew my mind.  This week I’m in withdrawal.  Big thanks.’ Robert Adam

‘What a blast Lisa! Do it again!’ Steve McGuire Stephen

‘Exquisitely curated by her, the exhibition displays the works of over 70 of the hottest artists from around the globe.  The atmosphere was electric and fun, with eccentric live performances in a venue that is airy and unique in character.  The ChromArt team were there in full.  We talked to the artists about their works and had a great time mingling with lots of familiar faces plus other art entrepreneurs like the lovely people of Whitesao.  It felt like a celebration and although the place was bursting to the seams with people, there was space to move around and everyone was having a great time.  The bar never seamed to run out either! Such was the frenzy the ChromArt team didn’t stick together long, just for a quick picture at the beginning of the evening.  This incombustible woman that is Lisa Gray, with her passionate drive and vision, has set the standard for contemporary art scene in London.  She is already preparing forthcoming shows.  We look forward to seeing what wonderful events she has prepared for us.’ ChromArt
