Private View: April 11th 18.00 – 21.00
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.
Mini Masterpieces Under £300
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.
Fifth Edition Celebration Gift
To celebrate this fifth and most ambitious edition FLUX will be giving away a limited edition artwork by Marcus Jake worth over £300 to the first 50 purchasers.
Marcus Jake is a UK, SW Wales and London based artist. Working in a mixed medium environment, often using photography as the cohesive element. His work is experiential and transpersonal, trying to capture those significant moments of the parts that make up the human experience. The results are generally emotion drenched pieces of work, touching on sadness and heartbreak but also capturing the beauty that is life. No matter how exposed the original subject matter is, you will often find a sense of hope, a reflection of what comes out of this place; strength, beauty, connection and courage. Jake’s artwork is collected worldwide.
Alan Powdrill is an award winning photographer who has exhibited widely throughout the UK and Europe with his original and thought provoking photographs. His landscapes take a different look at the everyday and the often overlooked with a unique hue and palette Alan’s imagery has a filmic quality that’s both sumptuous and rich offering the viewer an unusual point of view. Since his best friend gave him a camera almost 25 years ago, Alan went on to study photography in Edinburgh and then onto London to pursue a career as a worldwide artist working for a variety of high end clients.

Velazquez has exhibited individually in London, New York and Madrid and has participated in many exhibitions in galleries throughout Europe and America as well as at international art fairs.

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.
