How To Work Neon Typography In Your Home | The independent

0


Neon typography art is a must-have for all new Insta-centric bars and restaurants, and it’s easy to see why.

It’s a reporting period, from Andy Leek’s @notestostrangers on Instagram providing uplifting truths and advice to the public, to a host of national and global campaigns urging women to stand up against hateful attitudes and the treatment of women. in the entertainment industry / on the tube / everywhere, never.

What better way to reflect your thoughts, perspectives and political goals than with the brilliant and glorious glow of neon typography art? As artist and neon expert Lauren Baker will tell you, “your home should be a physical representation of your mind.”

Named after the famous rebellious and hedonist 19th century French Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, Tonight Joséphine is the place of choice for a waking night. The bar was designed by the team at Finch Interiors, who infused the space with an atmosphere of fiercely feminine sentimentality fueled by the 2000s – with a life-size Paris Hilton poster. Finch Interiors cites Joséphine herself as the inspiration for the design, a “pioneering feminist… The original IT Girl”.

The decor embodies the recovery by millennials of the color pink, in all its chewing-gum splendor; a throwback to a childhood “wrapped in plastic is fantastic” pencil cases, diaries and hairbrushes of dolls of the same shade. Perhaps the most photographed corner of the venue is the drastic and shameless neon signage that reads, “Well-bred women don’t make history.” The scale and the graphology of the piece emit a voluntary and political phosphorescence, reminding and reassuring all those who enter: the women will be, will do, dance and drink as we please.

Lauren Baker is a multidisciplinary artist, creating artwork for the home, for public display, and for charity, but Baker’s art of light includes some of her most visually striking and ethereal works. Her latest exhibition on Floral Street showcases the diaphanous yet vivid qualities of neon and how words can affect our moods. Sprawling, chimerical neon writing seems to float in a void-like darkness, like photographs with sparklers during a fireworks display.

Together We Will Burn Brighter by Lauren Baker: “It’s all about human connection” (Lauren Baker)

A favorite of Baker is Baker’s “Together We Will Burn Brighter”. The sentence takes the form of a circle, signifying the sense of oneness involved in the formulation – it’s not complex, but it’s powerful. About the job, Baker says, “It’s all about human connection. It is about working together to do good in the world and to feel close to all humans. A poignant message at the moment, politically and socially, Baker suggests that burning stronger together involves “sharing our lives freely and without prejudice, enlightening each other.”

The dreamlike text is axiomatic, suspended in the dark like an absolute truth, separated from the fallibility of human morality, disconnected from the physical, subjective world. Well done, Lauren Baker.

A visit to the Andrew Martin Showroom on Walton Street will leave you inspired, surprisingly well-traveled and intellectually stimulated. Trinkets from distant islands and fabrics and wallpapers inspired by markets, mountains and myths are just a fraction of the items available to browse.

A new branch of the Andrew Martin offering is a series of art collections, including dioramas, striking black and white prints and multimedia pieces, often politically weighted, incorporating neon typography to highlight evidence their integral social commentary.

Andrew Martin’s neon artwork is ironic, and their allusions to pop culture are playful, subversive, and thought-provoking. In Stop Wars, the figure of a modern man is crowned with a Stormtrooper helmet, against the backdrop of a school locker, pasted with prints, stickers and graffiti.

The words “stop wars” in blazing red neon headline the play, in the familiar Star Wars typeface, bringing heated political demand and the pervasive power of mass media into conversation. The play echoes the calls of pacifist youth, who embrace both their obligation to protest and their freedom to consume mainstream entertainment.

We are all guilty of leaving the walls unadorned. Whether your kitchen needs a retro touch or your bedroom has a single punchy line scribbled on the walls with brilliant writing, get your own neon typography art. Works by Lauren Baker and Andrew Martin are available for purchase online, while websites such as 1stDibs and treasures of which God’s heist are great places to find unique and eye-catching artwork for your home.
