Henry Flynt (born 1940 in Greensboro, North Carolina) is an American philosopher, musician, writer, and artist associated with the 1960s New York avant-garde. An influence on the concurrent Fluxus movement, Flynt coined the term “concept art” in 1961 and received attention for his anti-art activism in subsequent years. In recent decades, he has focused on philosophical work related to nihilism, science, and mathematical logic. A number of his archival musical recordings were released in the 2000s.

Henry Flynt quotes :
When I came to New York, I began to meet the people who became the most famous artists of our time. I was insecure about my own level of ability, I didn't know whether I could compete with these people and, at the same time. I was wondering what is this anyway?Henry Flynt
