Jay Flux is a 14yr old mind trapped inside something that passes for a grown up.
My love of art around that age was cemented by endless hours staring at album covers, posters, comics and video cassettes.
I use art as a form of mental balancing , self medicating through the use of pens. Although the subject matter can be a little dark , this is juxtaposed with the use of bright, near psychedelic colours to seduce and sometimes disorientate the viewer.
My ‘happy place’ is headphones on, music loud and the freedom to create , explore and escape without limits.
Music and art are inseparable. Music constantly inspires and fuels my ideas and direction.
