    About The Artwork

    Known as ‘The Neon Man’, artist and founder of neon wonderland Gods Own Junkyard Chris Bracey lived an extraordinary life, from sign-making for seedy Soho sex shops to prop-building in the movie industry. Following a chance meeting in the 80s with a film art director in Soho – Bracey was putting up a sex shop sign at the time – he had begun to make neon props for movie sets. His work can be seen in films as diverse as ‘Batman’, ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. The Rainbow Fancy Dress and Sonata Jazz Café signs in Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ are both his. In Bracey’s own words “What you’ve got here is Sodom and Gomorrah mixed with art.”
