Perhaps best known for coining the term "concept art" in an essay under that name in the 1963 proto-Fluxus publication "An Anthology" (edited by La Monte Young and Jackson MacLow), Flynt was an integral part of the New York avant-garde art and music scenes of the early 1960s. His rigorous anti-art stance and confrontational protest tactics against New York cultural institutions of the period were recast to issues of philosophy, physics, and economics after studying communist economics during the early 1970s, though with no less a confrontational approach to bourgeois culture, formalism, and modern aesthetics. As a musician, Flynt is known for his fusion of high-brow and so-called low-brow music, creating "a new American ethnic music," deemed by Flynt as "Hillbilly avant-garde," and performed on violin or guitar.

Flynt enjoyed a brief stint in the Velvet Underground in 1966, replacing an ailing John Cale. He also coined the term "involuntary celibate" in his essay "Creep," from his 1975 book "Blueprint for a Higher Civilization," decades before the often violent online movement.
