The six artists more representive of neon art
In this period of the year, in the days before Christmas, we are surrounded by light vortexes, intermittences of color, that crowd streets, shops, malls; so, willing or not, the Christmas spirit is clear, colored and nearly everywhere. But how do the artists use the light? Since the end of ‘60s, artists has been interesting in the light for their aims, in particular in the neon. It’s important to highlight that they don’t use the light for a decorative aim (not intentionally, at least). This kind of material is typically used for commercial neon signs. In fact, the neon is often considered as a communication material for the consumerism, and the artists use it in order to debunk this kind of approach, but also to reflect about the language, to study the space and to test new ways to use a work of art.
