Curated Artists

This collection of works looks to celebrate purpose activism, wellness, leadership and sustainability, constantly provoking curiosity beyond the first look.

Over 50 years ago, Unilever acquired Four Acres, a site in Kingston upon Thames. Four Acres is a place of transformation, an oasis of mindful wellness and a beacon for Unilever’s values and beliefs of Purpose, Leadership and Sustainability. Acrylicize has curated an extensive collection of 90 artworks from the Unilever Art Collection, Unilever Archives, new commissions and within Acrylicize's Educational Outreach Program.

Student Commissions

Working with Unilever, Studio KT1, Kingston University and through our Educational Outreach Program, we commissioned nine students and recent graduates to create bespoke artworks for display at Four Acres. The artists responded through sculpture, artificial intelligence, illustrations, painting, and photography, working to the brand guidelines of popular Unilever brands: Marmite, Lynx, Persil, Vaseline, Surf, Knorr, Hellmann’s and Lifebuoy.

This enriching process has allowed young artists to gain work experience and exposure as part of the renewed Unilever Art Collection. We curated their talents and skills to produce a collection of artworks honouring a range of Unilever brands for the Four Acres break-out rooms.
