As digital art rises in prominence, more collectors will want to display their assets in the best possible way. To meet the demand, LG has decided to channel its OLED TV expertise towards a number of exciting products, including the LG Transparent OLED Signage, 136-inch All-in-one LED full HD screen, the 97-inch OLEDevo Gallery Edition G2, as well as its two latest flagship TVs LG Posé and LG OLED Flex
As further proof of LG’s commitment to digital assets, LG joined Asia’s largest digital art event, the Digital Art Fair Xperience Hong Kong, as its exclusive screen partner. Earlier last year, LG was also the designated screen provider for Fine Art Asia 2022.
“LG was honoured to participate in this grand art event as official screen partner,” said Yuri Han, the managing director of LG. “LG has always placed great emphasis on how art and technology can be combined in order to make life better. Therefore, we showed how our top OLED technology displays presented different works of art at the event, reproducing every brushstroke of the artist with excellent picture quality, which greatly enhances the audience’s viewing enjoyment.”
The most eye-catching piece of the event was London-based Chinese artist Jacky Tsai’s “Meta Skull”. This artwork is displayed on LG Transparent OLED Signage with a transparency of up to 38 per cent. The see-through design perfectly integrated the work with the exhibition environment.
The piece took three years of hard work by Tsai and his creative team. The LG Transparent OLED Signage displayed the art in great detail from all angles, whether audience members are standing in front of or behind the artwork.
“We also hope to show the outside world how different TV and screen solutions can enhance the level of art appreciation through this platform. We hope to inspire people to understand how the perfect fusion of technology and art can enlighten your home life and bring art to life,” said Han.
Size certainly matters when showing art in all its glory. LG unveiled its 136-inch LED full HD All-in-one Smart Series for the first time at Digital Art Fair Xperience in Hong Kong. With a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 and a brightness of 500nit, you can enjoy all artworks in fine detail. It includes an embedded controller and built-in speaker.
LG also offers a gallery edition of its OLEDevo G2, which is available in a variety of size, going up to 97-inches. It’s perfect for building a gallery, be it in your home or otherwise.
Keeping in mind that art lovers need options, LG launched the second OLED TV in its Objet collection in Hong Kong – the LG Posé. The edges of the LG Posé are softly curved in a soft beige color, and the woven fabric grooves on the back of the fuselage providing useful storage space, with also room to store cables and set-top boxes, creating a simple and elegant home space
Besides LG’s top-tier OLED technology, LG Posé also draws on the company’s Brightness Booster technology. The brightness of the picture can be increased by 20 percent, which makes for especially striking display of images. With the built-in “art gallery” option, users can adjust different modes at will to turn their home space into an exquisite art gallery.
Finally, the LG OLED Flex marks the world’s first freely bendable 42-inch OLED screen. This marks the first truly customizable display as users can choose the ideal arc from up to 20 curvature levels, all according to their own preferences and requirements.
With its ultra-high-definition 4K resolution display, the display works for both art and gaming. It is compatible with gaming technologies such as Nvidia G-Sync, AMD FreeSync Premium, variable refresh rate.
Through the LG OLED ART project, the electronics brand intends to make life better through the power of art and technology, and show the public the integration of LG’s innovative technology and art.
