Discover new contemporary artists at FLUX Exhibition opening tonight

FLUX Exhibition is a groundbreaking and new kind of art event – a collection of the most dynamic painters, performance artists and musicians, which presents an alternative way to encounter today’s best new art.

FLUX has established itself as the platform for contemporary artists to be discovered and to be part of an exceptional, unconventional art event. Hosted by the Royal College of Art in Kensington and curated by Lisa Gray of Gray’s Art Gallery, this second much anticipated edition of FLUX brings 100 artists to the fore. Gray has hand selected the very best emerging talent for a five day interactive art event.

Andrew Kinsman, one of thirty-five artists featured on the BBC2 Documentary, “Show Me the Monet”. He exhibited his hyper realistic paintings in 2011 at the prestigious Royal Academy of Art.

Patricia Volk was Regional Winner of the ING “Discerning Eye” prize for her colourful ceramics. One of her pieces was also selected as a Southern Arts prize and she is a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors.

Steve Dolbin, an American sculptor whose work has appeared in the New York Times. Dolbin is also featured in the seminal textbook on Sculpture, “Shaping Space” by Zelanski and Fisher.

Emma Caton, an experimental mixed media installation artist who has been widely exhibited throughout the UK. Caton has also worked as a curator and has co-founded NEON, a non-profit arts organization.

Fuller, whose hand drawn maps of London have been featured on the BBC and Wired. Recently, a copy of his meticulous rendered map of Bristol has been archived in the Bristol Museum Historical Map collection.

Liviu Mihai, a Romanian painter who won the best artist prize at the Oxford International Art Fair, has shown his expressive, gestural paintings in numerous solo international exhibitions.

Marek Olszewski, a Polish photographer who has won numerous awards for his atmospheric landscape images. Olszewski is a member of North London Artist Network and he recently exhibited at The Strand Gallery.

Stasha Lewis, whose vibrant, freestyle acrylic paintings have had two successful sold-out exhibitions in London. Her work has also been shown at numerous London galleries including the Saatchi Gallery.

Gray says “FLUX is not a fair or a normal exhibition. FLUX is a unique experience for both artists and art lovers. Each artists work is considered so it does not compete with other work but stands alone and shines in its own light. The support we have gathered since the first exhibition has cemented our place in the contemporary art world and allowed us to continue to be creative.”

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

The show represents a rare opportunity to gain direct access to a diverse group of gifted artists, on the path to being the big names of tomorrow. Showcasing new talents in a collaborative, curated show, FLUX celebrates dynamic emerging artists on the precipice of wider accolade and fame.
