HI GUYS, WELCOME TO MY BLOG PAGE!
So the other day I was scrolling through Instagram and I came across an advert for London date nights or secret London (can’t really remember something London that come on your feed). As single as I am I always check them out, so I have a list of dates, for when the love of my life decides to show himself.
Whilst I was scrolling through the advert I saw a picture of God Own Junkyard. I have a love for neon lights I find them so beautiful, I was literally in heaven when I went to Las Vegas. If I could have a room full of neon lights with motivational quotes, I defiantly would, and it would look like Gods Own Junkyard. however it will defiantly have a different name, When people put God in a name of something it makes me feel some type of way BUT that a different story for a different day.
I said I am going to do weekly posts of “Art of the week”, so you’re probably confused on why I have choose this for this week. But I believe art is something subjective, anyone can be an artist it is a creative way to make your imagination come to life and express it in any format to show it to others. God Own Junkyard is an art gallery of neon light, illustrating signs and symbols but I think it could also be an art instillation as well as gallery. The way the lights are exhibited, it creates an overall experience, the different lights creates different emotions when in the space.
The amazing neon gallery is located in Walthamstow. I have yet to visit but it is definitely on my to do list. If you have a chance to visit let me know your experience and take videos and pictures. Gods own junkyard was created by Chris Bracey, who has been the Neon Man for 37 years as he has been creating iconic art pieces for people such as David la chappelle, Martin Creed etc. With a cult following in London and Los Angeles. He used both used & new neon fantasies, salvaged signs, reclaimed neon signs, old movie props and retro displays. (for more information check the website, which is below) GODS OWN JUNKYARD DETAILS
