Lost Language is a new London born collective of established artists and designers representing different parts of the world. We celebrate cross cultural identities through friendship and the common bond of art production and theory - initially connecting through living and breathing the London Town and international art scenes.

The name Lost Language arrived directly through hours of conversation (not all of it productive) over coffee, Chinese tea, beer and bottles of wine. The purpose, to excavate creative challenges and find some common ground in our individual artist lives. This discourse centred around our varied careers, lifestyles, aspirations, well-being and associated routes to success in 2019 and beyond.

In this way,  ‘Lost Language’ is about communication and how artists, through their work dissect and reinvent the ways we communicate and view the surrounding environment as well as the bodies we inhabit.

The collective artist’s work can be attributed to many repeating events taking place now, across the ‘art world’ and geopolitical spaces. The LL collective artists are subversive, embodying the notion of commentary through creativity.
