Win an Exclusive Ben Allen Washing Machine – #LookGood

September 18th, 2015 by LG UK   As the official Garment Care Suppliers to London Fashion Week, we kicked off our #LookGood campaign, a collaboration with British artist Ben Allen to help you care for what you wear.     Ben has managed to transform our common Garment Care Symbols into memorable artworks and we think the results are spectacular! Each symbol has been captured as an original painting using a combination of acrylic paint, emulsion and spray paint on canvas.   But the best part... not only are there now 8 original and unique artworks for us all to admire, but using his transformation of these rather plain symbols we've wrapped one of our 6 Motion Direct...

September 17th, 2015 by LG UK
CARE FOR WHAT YOU WEAR   After the revelation that £2 billion of clothing is ruined every year in the UK, we decided we want to help put garment care back on the agenda.   We've teamed up with British artist Ben Allen, who has also created artworks for the likes of Jade Jagger, Stephen Dorff, Sophie Ellis Bexter and Richard Branson with art displays in Selfridges and a 40ft artwork dominating the Notting Hill headquarters of Virgin, to create a unique collection of eight artworks that incorporate a selection of the core washing symbols which frequently appear in the wash instructions of our clothing.   Ben Allen has...

A world without technology

October 21st, 2009 by LG Blog UK
Don't get me wrong, I could not survive without my GW520 through which I email, text message, Twitter and Facebook, sometimes all at once. But there is some special, almost magical about finding an old letter, the smell of an envelope and the sentimental attachments you grow for these feather light paper messages. Just take a look at the example of history created on paper back in 1969, by the lead singer of the Rolling Stones, sent to one of the world's most famous artists Andy Warhol. It would most likely never have been available for us to see had it been...

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand..”

August 17th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
I just came across this entry in this year's Ukraine's Got Talent. The effect seems to be created by rearranging sand over a lightbox - but it's much more stunning than that makes it sound! It's a remarkable use of sand and the artist, Kseniya Simonova has a fantastic presence on the stage, managing to make the process dramatic and interesting to watch while never upstaging the animation. As someone who will remain unnamed to save embarrassment pointed out, she 'shore' has talent by the bucket load! But enough puns; watch Simonova's pictures paint a thousand...

Andy Goldsworthy

June 16th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
I've been a big fan of Andy Goldsworthy's sculpture for many years, and have recently rediscovered his brilliance. Goldsworthy is a British artist whose collaborations with nature produce uniquely personal and intense artworks. Using a seemingly endless range of natural materials—snow, ice, leaves, bark, rock, clay, stones, feathers petals, twigs—he creates outdoor sculpture that manifests a sympathetic contact with the natural world. Before they disappear, or as they disappear, Goldsworthy records his work in photographs. Goldsworthy deliberately explores the tension of working in the area where he finds his materials, and is undeterred by changes by changes in the weather which may...

‘Book Autopsies’ by Brian Dettmer

May 20th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
For the past 8 years an American artist called Brian Dettmer has been hacking up old books. His work has become known as the 'Book Autopsies' however he seems to prefer the term 'Altered Books'. The initial reaction to the idea of someone carving up books is not necessarily positive, the destruction of books feels like shocking vandalism. However, as Webphemera, who introduced me to his work, puts it: When the role of certain media decreases – or even deceases – Dettmer revitalizes their form to reveal their content to a new generation of ‘readers’. The idea behind the art is to...
