is wrapping up in London this week with its final show of the year taking place at the renowned Saatchi Gallery before moving on to other regions in 2022. The show, Media Art; Reinterpreted Time, features digitally remastered works from the biggest names in contemporary art given new life by the Royal College of Art. Also on display are a curated selection of diverse works from up-and-coming artists such as Je Baak, Luke Stephenson and Ruofan Chen.

Using LG’s self-lit OLED as a digital canvas, the artists deliver a range of unique perspectives on the concept of time through 20 LG OLED TV models including G1 Series OLED evo, Z1 Series 8K and LG SIGNATURE OLED R rollable TV incorporated throughout the exhibition. The OLED canvases’ immaculate picture quality blur the line between the real and digital worlds, perfectly preserving the artists’ creative intentions.

Part of a new generation pushing the boundaries of fine art, the talented young artists represented at the exhibit are visual innovators whose work encourages audiences to consider new perspectives and reevaluate what they know. Je Baak’s acclaimed video installation series, The Moment & Morpho Luna, comprises data-based works of art he calls “metabio art” that looks at the biological causal relationship between the metaverse space and actual space. Three LG OLED TVs – models 65R1, 65G1 and 88Z1 – serve as the medium through which Je Baak communicates the core concepts of his work. It’s because of OLED’s ability to deliver vibrant colors, infinite contrast and flexibility that Je Baak is able to create a depth of feeling and emotion that is palpable to the beholder.

In An Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds, noted British photographer Luke Stephenson portrays various species of birds, each capturing a specific moment in time while hinting at the tension that exists between nature and construct in his art. With exceptionally bright, sharp images, the four 77-inch LG G1 Series OLED evo TVs are able to accurately portray the dramatic colors and details that are the hallmarks of Stephenson’s work.

London-based artist Ruofan Chen presents a set of visually-striking pieces that speak to the emotional connection humans have formed with the natural world throughout time. Central to one of her exhibited pieces, the rollable OLED TV stands stoically between precisely-arranged tree branches, juxtaposing technology with life, inviting viewers to interpret the connection between the inorganic and the organic.

Thanks to the involvement of Saatchi Gallery, the exhibition also features representative pieces from some of modern art’s most celebrated practitioners such as Damien Hurst, Yayoi Kusama, Banksy and Ufan Lee. Exposing new detail and nuance to allow viewers to look on the familiar with new eyes, selected works of the artists were digitally remastered by a team of specialists at London’s Royal College of Art, one of the foremost postgraduate art and design universities in the world.

Beyond accurately reproducing the colors and textures of the originals, LG’s OLED TVs reveal new meaning in the remastered works, bringing the themes of time, life, death, infinity and resistance to the fore. It is the unique ability of OLED’s self-lit pixels to recreate the real, while simultaneously revealing elements previously unseen, that has media artists worldwide excited about LG’s next-gen displays.

Through a series of successful exhibitions held over the year, the SELF-LIT OLED Art project has succeeded in bringing attention to digital canvases as an important aspect of cutting-edge modern art.

      American Street Artist and Social Activist, Shepard Fairey Chooses LG OLED as His
      Digital Canvas at Frieze LA

      SEOUL, Mar. 1, 2024 — At Frieze Los Angeles 2024, LG OLED is joining forces with Shepard Fairey, the acclaimed contemporary street artist, social activist and founder of OBEY street wear, to bring street art into the realm of transformative digital expression. LG OLED, the ultimate digital canvas, is interwoven with Shephard’s physical works and the exhibition space itself to deliver a compelling sensory experience at LA’s annual art extravaganza.
      Themed Peace and Justice, the exhibition features a selection of Shepard Fairey’s instantly-recognizable work; hand-picked by the artist himself and drawing attention to some of the most pressing issues facing society today. Fairey blurs the boundary between traditional and commercial art, employing type and image to create vibrant pieces that offer bold, memorable visuals and thoughtful social critique.
      Although street art is, by its nature, an outdoor art form, Shepard is unafraid to embrace the digital medium, deftly uniting physical and virtual elements to add a new dimension to his artistic practice. Through the collection Peace and Justice, with support from LG OLED, the exhibition space at Frieze LA becomes an extension of Shepard’s distinctive art, delivering his unique creative vision in an innovative and highly original way.
      Reimagined for Frieze LA, the artist’s captivating Damaged Wrong Path Mural combines several iconic pieces from the artist’s well-received solo show, Damaged (2017). The clever deployment of LG OLED TVs brings fresh energy and a new dynamic to the large, complex piece.
      Leveraging the image accuracy made possible by LG OLED’s pixel-level control, Shepard amplifies the impact of this visually striking mural while imbuing it with a ‘newness’ that may surprise those familiar with the work. Shepard and LG OLED’s exclusive exploration of digital art also serves as a masterclass in the harmonious fusion of art and technology.
      “Art is about so much more than aesthetics; it should spur challenging conversations, broach meaningful topics and push us to feel uncomfortable emotions,” said Shepard Fairey. “The works included in my collaboration with LG OLED were chosen with these things in mind, and to demonstrate to audiences that the combining of art and technology can drive artistic practice and expression into new and rewarding territory.”
      “LG OLED is delighted to join with Shepard Fairey to push artistic boundaries and engage and inspire visitors at Frieze LA,” said Kate Oh, vice president of the Brand Communication Division at the LG Home Entertainment Company. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to the arts and will continue to support artists who share our passion for innovation and for making a positive difference.”
      LG OLED is dedicated to introducing more people to the exciting, always-evolving world of digital art. Through its LG OLED ART initiatives, the LG OLED brand continues to celebrate the fusion of art and technology, and connect with art enthusiasts from all around the globe.
