"Art is Our Future, My Destiny."
Fleks, an international street artist from the Netherlands. Into the street art world since 1999, recognized for high contrasts, reflection of life and luminous choices of colors.
Fleks is dedicated to leave his marks in the world through art. In 2011, he initiated the world tour"In Search of Freedom" to discover deeper understanding of life. He travelled expansively to merge in different cultures, and he has worked in several projects worldwide over Europe, America, Australia and Asia.
Fleks set up a studio in Collingwood, Melbourne, Australia and now his studio is aimed at the world. He has never given up on the journey of graffiti which is his passion, his energy and his belief. Graffiti is the art which reflects cultural and political issues of this moment, this place, reality and non-reality.
With vast experience transforming his imagination into reality, Fleks developed skills: very realistic, very imaginary or 3D to reach his perfection. His projects diverse from murals, automobiles, multimedia to canvases. With the love towards graffiti, Fleks is persistently on his way to TARGET CITY which is his blueprint of the ultimate graffiti empire.
街頭藝術，是打破疆界的一種自由藝術，2011年FLEKS開始以「In Search of Freedom 尋找自由」為命名，從他的國家荷蘭出發，展開橫跨四大洲的世界創作旅行。從歐洲、美洲、澳洲到亞洲，FLEKS的創作讓他發現街頭藝術就像是在世界中尋找畫布，喜歡街頭藝術真實的本質，他的藝術創作能讓想像力的衝擊成真。
FLEKS的作品風格和字體充滿向美式紐約Old School致敬的精神，擁護經典之外，更擅長結合未來科幻與太空主題，用塗鴉穿梭地球城市的過去與未來，反映出多年在世界各地創作的創作涵養。融合擅長的Wild Style、未來科幻、寫實風格，一手創造出充滿能量的場域，靈活地運用色彩和塗鴉字型，鮮明、奔放、主題意境來創作圖像，藉由未來圖像反推探討人類的現在，震撼的能量不能被平面所侷限，是FLEKS對塗鴉藝術最深沈的偏執。
