Art should always be in a state of Flux, whether in music, sculpture, painting, film, performance and so on. Art should constantly be evolving, flowing. A tribute to great artist such as Frida Kahlo, Man Ray, musicians such as James Brown, Freddy Mercury, Nirvana, Blondie, art movements such as the Dadaist and young idealist such as Jorge Rodriguez Gerada, poets such as Jean Cocteau and filmmakers such as Lars Von Trier, ArtFluxxx is all about breaking new ground and giving art your own signature.

As a celebration of music and art, the series consist of all styles and genres of music, placing emphasis on indie/pop/dance rock/goth/punk/funk/garage/live instrumental hip hop/R&B/avant garde/experimental.
