Color and Joy: LG OLED evo TVs and the Artistry of Yinka Ilori Create Visual Magic at The Conran Shop


Recommended Posts

This London Craft Week, visitors to The Conran Shop’s Chelsea and Marylebone locations will be greeted by a feast for the eyes, or perhaps, more accurately, a ‘Forest of Eyes.’ Delivering vivid colors and infinite contrast via millions of self-lit pixels, LG OLED evo TVs will play an important role in stunning, new art installations created by London-based multidisciplinary artist, Yinka Ilori, for leading lifestyle retailer, the Conran Shop.*

Yinka Ilori’s distinctive work will shine out from the stores’ large display windows, communicating hope and optimism through the artist’s bold, joyful palette and signature use of pattern. Introducing his ‘Forest of Eyes’ theme, the installations will comprise a series of eye-shaped boxes, made from timber and alive with color, resembling blossoming rainbow-hued flowers.

Within each box will be a series of smaller eye-shaped forms, a mirrored floor, and an LG OLED evo TV that blurs the line between real and digital with its immaculate picture quality. The vibrant, accurate colors and deep, inky blacks of LG’s self-lit TVs will accurately reproduce Ilori’s colorific creations on screen, preserving his artistic intentions while seamlessly blending with the installations’ physical elements to help capture the attention – and imagination – of passersby.

LG OLED evo TVs leverage LG’s most-evolved OLED display tech to create mesmerizing viewing experiences. LG OLED evo technology is the exclusive combination of the company’s cutting-edge picture algorithms and the α9 Gen5 AI Processor. Applied to LG’s 2022 G2 series (LG OLED evo Gallery Edition) and C2 series models, OLED evo elevates the ability of the TVs’ self-lit pixels to deliver superior clarity, detail, contrast and color, for images that practically jump off the screen.

      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.
