The gallery “Lights of Soho” is located in the heart of Soho, just a short walk from Piccadilly Circus. This small and intimate gallery in Brewer Street specializes in presenting the best work from artists all over the world, using the medium of light.
Following the passing of the well-known neon artist Christ Bracey’s, his family decided, to display some of his best known works at the gallery, created during his 40-year long career.
Bracey’s originally started his career by designing signs for Soho’s sex shops but his creations became known worldwide by being used in movies such as “Bladerunner”, “Eyes Wide Shut” and “Batman”, to name only a few. Many of the exhibits on display can be purchased as well!
This exhibition shows some of his most dazzling and original pieces from his “God’s Own Junkyard” http://www.godsownjunkyard.co.uk/ exhibition.
The Lights of Soho gallery, with its mix of blank white walls and bare brick walls, is the perfect backdrop for Bracey’s colourful, quirky and unique designs and if you are in Soho, please pay a visit to this unique exhibition, displayed over two floors.
