SPOTLIGHT: Neon Artist Chris Bracey

Chris Bracey got his start in the art world making neon signs for sex shops in Soho before being chosen to work on iconic films like Eyes Wide Shut and Batman.

Neon was once very much the preserve of seedy Soho strip joints, the garish enticements signposting the border where the real world ended and a more promiscuous, salacious underworld began. Now it’s a staple of art, fashion shoots and high end window displays.

The neon-light guru works out of a studio called God’s Own Junkyard in east London. It’s a graveyard of new and reclaimed neon signs, lights from fairgrounds and arcades, vintage signs from America, as well as original pieces he makes on site.
