FLUX EXHIBITION Launches Mini-Masterpices for 2016 Edition
November 02-06th, The Old Truman Brewery, London - Private View: November 3rd 6:30-9:30pm
Now in it’s third edition, 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 iconic Old Truman Brewery in East London and curated by Lisa Gray founder of FLUX, this year’s much anticipated exhibition, represents a rare opportunity to gain access to a diverse group of 140 artists, on the path of being the big names of tomorrow. FLUX celebrates dynamic artists on the precipice of wider accolade and fame.
Gray says “FLUX is the size of an art fair but is a carefully curated exhibition. It is a unique experience for both artists and art lovers, as we showcase a collection of the most talented painters and sculptors alongside site specific installation, performance and music.
The support we have gathered from both the public and our artists since the first exhibition has cemented our place in the contemporary art world and allowed us to continue to be creative.”
FLUX private view is widely known as the event to be at, where the evening comes alive with musical guests and performance artists which compliment the work and brings a new experimental approach to the exhibition.
Also launching exclusively at FLUX is a new and exciting concept Mini Masterpieces where artists have created a smaller original for sale at £200 or less. This is a great way for both new and seasoned collectors to purchase work from artists at a fraction of what their usual sized artwork is valued at.
Key artists in FLUX 2016 include:
Gillian Hyland, an Irish photographer whose work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and Harper’s Bazaar. Her film noir style images earned her two silver medals at the Prix de la Photographie Paris in 2014 since then her photographs have been exhibited around the world and have received numerous accolades including The Ward Thomas Photography Award in 2016.
Darren Baker has become one of the UK’s most collectable artists since his remarkable portrait of the Queen was unveiled by Princess Anne at Westminster Abbey. Darren has painted Prime Ministers, Royalty and the sporting elite, and his celebrated works hang in collections from 10 Downing Street and the House of Lords to St James’s Palace. His oil paintings and charcoals have attracted critical and popular acclaim - the Sunday Times described his work as "thrilling" and "virtuosic" - and his paintings are increasingly sought after by art collectors from the UK, Europe, the USA and Japan.
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.

‘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
‘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 100 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.
Lisa, just a quick note to congratulate you on the FLUX exhibition, which my colleague and I attended last night. It was impeccably curated: the dark and dysfunctional themes explored by your artists are, I think, in tune with the current socio-political zeitgeist. We are delighted with our purchase of “Crossing Over” by Lesley Oldaker. I would like to be kept informed of future FLUX events.
It’s always difficult for emerging artists to get their work seen, unless they have the support of a major gallery. This is especially true in London where gallery space is at such a premium and so expensive. So Lisa Gray deserves a great deal of credit for quite literally putting her money where her mouth is in supporting undiscovered artists. In February 2015 she staged the first Flux in The Rag Factory in the East End of London. The success of that inspired her to think big and the current incarnation of Flux has taken the huge step up to the Royal College of Art, right beside the Albert Hall in Kensington. Lisa Gray’s aim is not simply to give exposure to these artists but bring significant buyers to their work. Judging by sales on the opening night, the strategy is bearing fruit.
Exhibitions such as FLUX are so much more rewarding than art fairs, the experience gives time to really study the art. Having only seen Lesley’s work online it was absolutely more engrossing in person. Thomas’s work though it already looks amazing online, to get up close and see the detail – the exploration is far superior. We’ve since invited both artists to exhibit at Nude Tin Gallery and in future any FLUX Exhibition will certainly be on our radar as well as many artists we’ve seen featuring in the exhibitions. If you are an artist and Lisa Gray accepts your work into a FLUX Exhibition then you more than likely have a future masyterpiece on your hands.
