Chris Bracey

From the love of a giant Christmas tree covered in lights at the age of 5 Chris Bracey began his life long affair with light.  The family business helped to fuel this interest with his father making neon signs for fairgrounds all around the south coast.  A foundation course at college led him to work in a commercial art studio in the West End where he learnt the importance of perfection.    Eventually the call to work with light became too strong and he started work in the family business which within 5 years he transformed into a leading edge company.   He worked with neon, played with neon and breathed neon.   In the 70’s and 80’s Soho’s screaming signs were all designed, made and fitted by Chris working round the clock to meet the relentless demand to draw in the punters.  The film Mona Lisa for which Chris illuminated statues of Mary fuelled his love affair with the film industry.  Since, he has illuminated the streets of many productions, Judge Dredd, Batman, Superman, Tomb Raider, 007, and Eyes Wide Shut with Stanley Kubric to name but a few.  Chris was thrilled to receive a commission to work with David Lachapell for the Selfridges Vegas Super Nova spectacular in 2004 reproducing the visions of the sleazy side of Las Vegas from LaChapell’s head into large neon window displays.   Chris’s love of old signs, love of light, and fascination of the unusual spurred him on to produce incredible neon and bulb artworks which are collected by a cult following in LA and across Europe.
