Sculpture brings history and innovation together in Leamington

A NEW sculpture celebrates the vibrant mix of history and innovation in Leamington.

Artist Lucy Tomlins’ piece spotlights the town’s thriving gaming industry of today as well as artists and designers whose work secretly contributed to the allied victory in World War II.

Lucy draws inspiration from the Leamington Camoufleurs, a group of 60 artists commissioned by the government to camouflage buildings and ships to confuse enemy bomber pilots.

From a distance, the sculpture is camouflaged, paying homage to the Camoufleurs. However, when moving closer, the sculpture is a digital tropical garden – a testament to the endless possibilities of the gaming world.




The Royal College of Art graduate’s sculpture has been unveiled in the town’s Spencer’s Yard, the heart of Leamington’s creative community and home to the recently opened dynamic workspace The Fold and SAE institute.

Lucy said: “I hope this sculpture sparks meaningful dialogue and awareness about the vibrant gaming industry here in Leamington. My vision is to foster greater collaboration and inspire the next generation of creatives.”
